Porowski, Allan; Fernandez, Felix; Decker, Sarah; Basta, Kelle; Gdula, Julie
ICF International (NJ1)
School dropout is a widespread and serious problem in the United States, with enormous consequences for students who choose its path. While recent federal efforts related to dropout prevention measure the extent of the problem, this white paper explores ICF's recommendations to solve it. And while there is no "magic bullet" with regard to dropout prevention, effective changes to policy and practice based on in-depth research and a multi-faceted approach can positively change the lives of American youth.
