Phoenix Union High School District Special Report: The Dropout Problem. Report No. 22:11:79/80:013a.
Norris, Carol; And Others
For students contemplating dropping out of school, the issue is dealt with strictly with facts, figures and real-life responses to questions posed to dropouts by dividing the issue into four brochures: (1) Dropout? Check It Out?; (2) Dropouts Who Return; (3) If I Leave School Where Can I Get Job Training; and (4) If I Leave School Will I Be Able to Find A Job. Reasons the potential dropout can identify with are followed by the positive reasons dropouts gave for their return to school. Charts and diagrams are used to show how the dropout's initial reason for dropping out differed from what actually happened. Even the dropouts who found jobs tended to come back to schools; reasons for return are cited in the third brochure where entrance requirements for career and vocational schools are given. Hiring policies in sample work areas wrap up the investigation of the dropout's life. (CE)
