Orthner, Dennis K.; Cook, Patricia G.; Rose, Roderick A.; Randolph, Karen
Children & Schools, v24 n2 p105-21 Apr 2002
This study examined the relationships among academic achievement, dropout patterns, and welfare reform strategies. Findings suggest that welfare reform has not translated into better educational trajectories for children from poor families. Findings suggest the need for stronger linkages between welfare departments and school systems for adopting strategies to improve outcomes for families in poverty. (JDM)
