Ohio Study of High School Drop Outs 1962-1963.
Nachman, Leonard R.; And Others
A survey of the dropout situation in Ohio in 1962-63 is reported. Data are presented on dropout rate, month of dropout, and age, grade, and grade repetition. Also discussed are test information, attendance and discipline, maturity, family background, reasons for leaving school, future plans and activities of dropouts, and the exit interview. Dropping out is found to be related to one or more of five factors--characteristics of the youth, the reaction of the school to unsuccessful students, the home environment, availability of employment opportunities, and "historic events."
