Eberhard, David R.
Journal of American Indian Education, v29 n1 p32-40 Oct 1989
Urban American Indian dropouts and stayers in four cohorts (graduating classes) were examined on variables related to their years of high school attendance. Parent and student group interviews revealed that dropping out was related to lower academic achievement, retention in grade, greater family mobility, tribal affiliation, and school attended. (SV)
