Guidance and the School Dropout.
Schreiber, Daniel, Ed.
The problem of the potential school dropout and the implications for the school counselor provide the major foci of this book. Several conclusions reached by the 11 contributors of this volume are: (1) the school dropout problem is multifaceted, demanding attention from schools and community; (2) pupil personnel have an important responsibility and contribution to make; (3) the counselor is not the only or primary agent in combating early school leaving; (4) opinion is divided concerning the effectiveness of different programs for potential dropouts; (5) the school should try to identify the potential dropout as early as possible; (6) counselors should note the crucial role of dropouts' parents and home environment; (7) unintentional and harmful attitudes and practices may exacerbate the dropout problem; (8) each community needs to reexamine its current youth programs, especially those for young people not planning to enroll in college.
