Cuellar, Alfredo; Cuellar, Mariano-Florentino
Journal of Educational Issues of Language Minority Students, v9 p115-36 Fall 1991
This literature review demonstrates that dropouts follow a similar though inverse path compared to students who have attained academic excellence. Descriptions of at-risk students' characteristics lead to a discussion of the "loser's circle" of dropping out and strategies for attaining a "winner's circle" of academic excellence.
