Dropouts: A Challenge to Society.
Several characteristics have been identified as permeating the lives of a great many dropouts. The potential dropout may be several years retarded in reading and mathematics, and is usually plagued by personal, social, and familial problems. Suggestions for stemming the alarming rate of school dropouts include community provision for treatment and diagnosis of personality problems, provision for part-time employment for those students who need financial assistance, and evaluation by the school of each student's capabilities and interests so that obtainable goals can be individually established and provide each student with a measure of success. An extensive bibliography concludes the document. (DA)
