Juvenile Justice Bulletin, Feb 1997
Dropping out of school has long-term financial and social costs for children and society. This bulletin describes promising new efforts across the country to reduce the number of juveniles who leave school prematurely and who are at risk of delinquency because they are truants or dropouts, afraid to attend schools, suspended or expelled, or in transition from the juvenile justice system to their school. The bulletin summarizes the problems and corresponding approaches for dealing with fearful students, truants, suspended and expelled students, students reintegrating into schools from the juvenile justice system, and dropouts. A list of publications available from the U.S. Department of Education and from the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention. (Contains 39 endnotes.) (LMI)
