Demographic and Social Accounting: A Follow-Up on the Withdrawals from Quebec Colleges.
Farine, Avigdor
This paper analyzes (1) the reasons for not attending school given by dropouts from community colleges; (2) the situation of college graduates and the degree of their satisfaction compared with that of dropouts; and (3) the profile of the college dropout. Self-administered questionnaires were sent to college students who failed to register in September 1971. Subjects surveyed include those high school graduates who had indicated that they would be attending college in the fall as well as those who failed to return to college. It was found that students drop out of college for academic, sociological, psychological and financial reasons. (Author/HS)
