Dropout Report: Delaware Public Schools, 1973-74.
Boozer, Robert F.; Geiszler, Joan C.
This is the second annual report on public school dropouts in Delaware. The purpose of the report is to provide an accurate statistical description of school dropouts to dispel any stereotypes that might hinder development of programs to aid dropouts. The data presented was compiled from monthly reports submitted by local school districts to the State Department of Public Instruction during the 1973-74 school year. The information includes sex, race, age, grade, course of study, and reason for leaving school. Each variable is analyzed singly and in combination with every other variable. Although most of the data pertains to the state as a whole, the appendix contains a statistical breakdown of the number of dropouts by district, county, and grade level. The appendix also contains a copy of the processing form used by school districts to report dropout data to the State Department of Public Instruction. (Author/JG)
