Holding Power and Dropouts, Leflore County School District, Mississippi. Reports of Consultants and Advisory Specialists under Planning Grant, Title III, Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965.
Curtis, Hazen A.
The student bodies in 2 Leflore County schools in Mississippi are described and the number of dropouts and the holding power of these rural schools are estimated on the basis of the total enrollment data of each school during the period between 1960 and 1968. It is noted that there are marked differences in the stability indices and holding power of the 2 schools, reflecting the relatively poor status of Negro pupils. Recommendations are given (1) for additional social-worker-type supervision; (2) for improvement of instruction, parental education, general adult education, additional vocational education, increased guidance and counseling services, addition of psychological special services, and special education; (3) for pre-school and kindergarten education; and (4) for a general supervisor of instruction. Tables showing pertinent information are included. This work was prepared under funds from Title III of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. (AN)
