Rumberger, Russell W.; Lamb, Stephen P.
Economics of Education Review, v22 n4 p353-66 Aug 2003
Examines the experiences of high school dropouts from the United States and Australia in the first 2 years beyond high school. Finds differences in the experiences of dropouts in the U.S. compared with those in Australia, as dropouts in Australia are more likely to participate in post-school education and training and more likely to settle into productive employment.
