The purpose of this study is threefold: (1) to analyze the attendance records of the Temple High School; (2) to determine whether the irregular attendance contributes directly to early withdrawal; and (3) to offer on the basis of the findings of this study some suggestions for eliminating non-attendance, reducing to a minimum irregular attendance, and devise some means of keeping more of the scholastics in school through the completion of the high school.
This study is limited to the pupils of the Temple High School, Diboll, Texas and covers the period from 1943 through 1949. Its main concern is with an analysis of the attendance during this period and with discovering the degree of relationship between irregular attendance and withdrawal from school. The analysis of the records will be divided into two parts. The first part will deal with attendance of all the scholastics in the school district. The second part will be concerned with selected groups or grades of the school and the analysis will cover only the members of this group. Though the findings of this study may or may not be definite, they will at least furnish a basis for the solution to some of the attendance problems and will serve as a basis for further study.
