Of Kitsch and Caring. The Illusion of Students At Risk.
School Administrator, v45 n8 p16-18,23 Sep 1988
A look at national and particularly urban dropout rates reveals that the disadvantages of high school dropouts, relative to their graduate peers, are confounded by race, ethnicity, social class, and gender. Their troubles in terms of employment and earnings are more devastating today than they were 20 years ago. Quotes from Chester Finn present the Department of Education's views. (MLF)
