Strategy Development for Urban Dropout Prevention: Partnering with Formerly Incarcerated Adult Noncompleters
Irby, Decoteau J.; Mawhinney, Lynnette
Preventing School Failure, v58 n2 p110-119 2014
This article highlights a research project that involved formerly incarcerated adults who were school noncompleters. The project engaged the participants in a series of activities to explore their experiences and gain insights into approaches to dropout prevention they believed would help students at risk to complete high school. This article focuses on the research participants' perspectives on strategies for addressing the problem that included a community mobilization approach, a family wraparound approach, a cultural and psychological awareness education approach, and an intensive recruitment approach to offering support to at-risk students.
