Hess, Robyn S.
Journal of Education for Students Placed at Risk, v5 n3 p267-89 2000
Used an ecological model to examine different factors impacting school completion and dropping out for Mexican American students, highlighting: the microsystem (individual settings), which emphasizes daily interactions represented by the family, the classroom, and peer relationships; the mesosystem (setting interactions); the exosystem (community settings); and the macrosystem (societal contexts). Presents suggestions for prevention within each level of the model. (SM)
