A Research Report on New Brunswick School Drop-Outs in the Academic Year 1963-1964.
Drummie, Mary A.
This study of dropouts from New Brunswick (Canada) schools presents a description of dropout characteristics and makes a comparison with findings of the dropout profile from the preceding year. Six variables were found to be stable factors--sex, original language (French or English), end result of leaving school (work, school, or other), grade age, and school curriculum (academic or non-academic). The degree of data stability is said to be relevant to planning long-term prevention programs. (NH)
