This new and expanded edition provides a compilation of material in two parts. Part One, (An Educational Perspective,) discusses the curricular causes, needed changes in instructional delivery, curricular changes, and the visible and invisible dropout. The suggested reforms should have an immediate salutary effect on school and community. Part Two, (A Human Focus Perspective,) provides new information on delinquency and dropouts, alternative centers for learning, non-curricular changes, immigrant and seasonal farm workers, and current prevention practices. In summary, the lock-step curriculum and the specialist system are primary culprits in forcing a great many students to drop out. The abandonment of these systems together with the adoption of curriculum-based assessment methods and cooperative learning techniques are the recommended solutions. This volume will be especially useful to teachers, school administrators, educational policymakers, and others concerned with dropout prevention. The programs and strategies contained in this book will provide positive direction and improve the educational quality in any school system.
