The purpose of this paper is to review the extent to which the problem of drop-outs is a national problem; consider the factors which appear to be contributing to the problem in this country among secondary students from the literature survey; where possible, point out the characteristics of drop-outs; and, as a result of a study of a select group of drop-outs and in-school students, recommend procedures which may be utilized in the reduction of elimination of the problem of drop-outs which occur before the completion of high school.
The problem of drop-outs considered in this paper will be those found among students in the eighth through the twelfth grades.
The data treated in this paper are those related to sixty-five drop-outs from the Booker T. Washington Technical High School as contained in the official records of the Dallas Independent School District, and the results of a survey conducted on a total of one hundred twenty-five potential drop-outs in the Booker T. Washington Technical High School, Dallas, Texas.
