Hendry, L. B.; McKenzie, H. F.
Scottish Educational Review, v10 n2 p53-61 Nov 1978
This study of 2430 pupils, aged 15-16, examined differences between those in favor of raising the school-leaving age and those opposed. Results showed clear social class, academic and attitudinal differences. Using a subsample, an attempt was made to identify specific advantages and disadvantages seen for "staying on." (SJL)
