Reyes, Pedro; Capper, Colleen A.
Educational Administration Quarterly, v27 n4 p530-57 Nov 1991
Reviews school effects literature concerning student dropouts and critically examines urban principals' viewpoints, focusing on definitions, current practices and proposed solutions, and context considerations. Principals blamed either the individual or the community context for student disengagement from school, relying on support services and special programs without considering fundamental school restructuring.
