Truancy and Dropout among Cambodian Students: Results from a Comprehensive High School.
Goldberg, Margaret E.
Social Work in Education, v21 n1 p49-63 Jan 1999
The project described in this article investigates student explanations of truancy and dropout, and associated demographic and academic variables among Cambodian students (N=23) at a comprehensive high school. Results suggest that students at high risk of truancy can be identified before they start high school on the basis of their behavior in middle school. (Author/MKA)
