The Social Creation of School Dropouts: Accomplishing the Reproduction of an Underclass.
Papagiannis, George J.; And Others
Youth and Society, v14 n3 p363-92 Mar 1983
Maintains that dropping out of school is more usefully interpreted in social structural terms rather than as an individual psychological event. Reviews research findings to support the argument that schooling reproduces a class-based society by legitimating the social role of the dropout and allocating students to that devalued status.
