Within the last two decades, numerous schools have made follow-up studies of their graduates and drop—outs. These studies have ranged from reviews of a particular phase of a school program covering a short period of time to complex studies extending over a period of years. Such studies have been made by individuals, by departments of schools, and by entire faculties.

Although the problem considered and the methods used in various studies may be identical, the facts found in one school did not and could not apply wholly to another school.

For such a study of this sort to be of maximum value to a school, it should be made by an individual or a group familiar with and interested in the local district and the findings should be available to the administration and faculty of the school.

Statement of the Problem

It is the purpose of this study to investigate and analyse (l) the incidence of drop-outs in Garrison High School, Garrison, Texas, (2) the causes of early school leaving that exist in the school, and (3) to determine the measures that might be taken to reduce the incidence of drop-outs in Garrison High School.
