Managing and Improving the Education of Students At-Risk.
Chand, Krishan
The dropout problem in the United States is explored; and some suggestions for reducing the dropout rate are offered for parents, teachers, and principals. Several indicators have been recognized as placing a student at risk of dropping out of school. Dimensions of alienation have also been identified, as have social factors that contribute, including poverty, crime, drug and alcohol use, and teen pregnancy. Twenty-five general suggestions are given for the educational system to help reduce the dropout rate. Parent participation is essential, and a list of 111 suggestions is presented for parents, most centering around being a good example to a child. One hundred and five suggestions for educational improvement are directed toward teachers, and a final 104 suggestions are aimed at principals. Parents, teachers, and administrators have vital roles to play in combating dropouts. (SLD)
