Copertina anteriore
Lois Weis, Eleanor Farrar, Hugh G. Petrie
SUNY Press, 1 gen 1989 - 238 pagine
The authors examine the major groups within the dropout population, the myriad of factors within schools that lead to dropping out, and the larger social and economic context within which dropping out occurs. The resulting synthesis of knowledge and perspectives provided here will enhance our understanding of an important topic that has, to this time, been given too little attention.
