This compilation pulls together the most recent resources concerning students at risk, summarizing and displaying a number of sources dealing with this issue. The articles represent two major areas: (1) policy and studies and (2) programs and projects. This information includes summaries of studies done at a national level as well as programs developed in New York State. Profiles of the student at risk, labor market concerns, and sociological issues are included. Possible solutions are developed by the Board of Regents in their statements of policy and prevention. Innovative projects are described at both state and national levels. National centers are described, and New York State programs and efforts are highlighted. In addition, a number of resources are cited: a bibliography, a listing of ERIC resources, and a listing of state and national sources that may be contacted. (Information for this report was extracted from issues of "The Benchmark," a bimonthly report on occupational and continuing education in New York State.) (KC)
