Survey of Attitudes of Incarcerated Felons on Dropping Out of Public School.
Porter, Robert F.; Gilberg-Porter, Jody
Journal of Correctional Education, v35 n3 p80-82 Sep 1984
A survey of 133 inmates without high school diplomas in Texas prisons ascertained their reasons for dropping out of public schools. The desire or necessity to work were most commonly cited. Only 12 percent felt that dropping out contributed to their incarceration, although over 75 percent said they should have stayed in school. (SK)
