Remedial and Special Education, v20 n2 p78-83 Mar-Apr 1999
Interviews with 44 dropout youth with learning disabilities, behavior disorders, or mild mental retardation found that educators and administrators need to change their attitudes toward and treatment of these youth, that the youth themselves need to change their attitudes and behavior, and that there needs to be more support from teachers and changes made in attendance and discipline policies.
