Dropout: Intervening with the Reluctant Learner.
Cohen, Sandra B.; deBettencourt, Laurie V.
Intervention in School and Clinic, v26 n5 p263-71 May 1991
This article examines school dropout rates, the impact of dropouts on society, and the prevention of dropouts by early identification of "reluctant learners" and early instructional interventions that address motivation, self-concept, attention, and learning strategies. At the secondary level, intervention should focus on school conditions that are controllable, and therefore alterable. (DB)
