The ninth of a series of 10 study units for a Migrant Educators' National Training OutReach (MENTOR) correspondence course explores reasons for dropping out among migrant students, ways to lower dropout risk, vocational education needs, and role models. Designed for use in preservice or inservice teacher education, the unit points to the predominance of school-related factors in dropout decisions and the prevalence of perceptions of teacher indifference. Discussion of ways to reduce dropout risk includes problem recognition, high risk student identification, elimination of elementary school flunking practices, compensatory programs, and individual attention. The unit examines the successes and failures of vocational education and special vocational needs of migrant students and emphasizes the need for success stories and role models. A 46-item bibliography and list of state offices of migrant education are included. (LFL)
