The School Dropout: Causes, Effects and Solutions.
Cinal, Terry Lynn
This document reviews the literature on elementary and secondary school dropouts and notes the effects and possible solutions to the dropout problem. Statistical findings about dropouts from the 1960's to the present are presented along with methods of predicting who the dropouts will be. Dropout characteristics, including psychological, social, academic and vocational, are described. The impact of dropping out on income and occupation, as well as the effect on the family and society, is discussed. The remainder of the materials is divided according to dropout programs including alternative schools, adult counseling, peer counseling, vocational education and work study programs. A glossary and annotated bibliography are also provided. (JAC)
