Urban American Indians "Dropping" Out of Traditional High Schools: Barriers & Bridges to Success.
Jeffries, Rhonda; Nix, Mary; Singer, Carson
High School Journal, v85 n3 p38-46 Feb-Mar 2002
Case studies of three urban American Indian high school dropouts found that alienation in school, family values, and a need for economic independence contributed to dropping out. An alternative high school in Milwaukee (Wisconsin) for at-risk and American Indian students emphasizes wellness, school-to-work programs, service learning, culturally relevant curricula, and student participation in school decisions.
