Dropout! An Evaluation of A Pilot Dropout Project.
Dye, Robert P.; And Others
This report evaluated a project designed to identify, locate, and assist high school dropouts in Oahu, Hawaii. The study group consisted of 105 males and 145 females. Former dropouts were used as outreach aides to: (1) contact potential dropouts in the schools, and (2) to assist the student in resolving his difficulty. The study revealed that most students dropping out of school value education and find it personally desirable. This became clear after an attempt to steer students to the Employment Opportunity Center was unsuccessful. Some proposals were: (1) get students and teachers together outside of the classroom to discuss what each of them likes, and (2) schools must pay attention to morality and values. The report is divided into three parts: (1) the Aide Training Program, (2) the Students, and (3) the Jobs. A general discussion of dropouts, some concluding remarks and some recommendations for further projects follow. (Author/EK)
