The Influences of School Policies and Practices on Dropout Rates.
Quinn, Terrence
NASSP Bulletin, v75 n538 p73-83 Nov 1991
According to this literature review, school practices such as placement of at-risk students in alternative, nontraditional programs, individualized counseling, low student-teacher ratio, heavy vocational emphasis, and peer tutoring successfully lower dropout rates, whereas remediation, retention in grade, tracking, and suspension only exacerbate the problem.
