This paper researches the topic of high school dropouts, and explores how to intervene prior to students dropping out, how to support students in returning to school after dropping out, and finally how to assist drop outs who prefer to obtain GEDs rather than return to school. The paper reviews possible causes of the problem, and demonstrates ways to intervene at all stages of the process, from at-risk pre-dropouts to post-dropout clean up. The paper includes administrator and staff surveys in Appendix 1.

From the Paper:

"Dorn has written a comprehensive textbook describing the history, from a sociological perspective as to the manner in which the institutions of education have been formed through failed policy to create a system that does not successfully teach students. The work describes the manner in which policies, administrations, schools and even the teachers themselves contribute to the problem of high drop out rates. The work highlights the waves of attention to different policies that have over the years contributed to decreases or increases in drop out rates and why such systems are failing students, even today. Dorn creates a strong case for the fact that statistical and social analysis in the US education system frequently seeks to resolve the problems by oft renewing programs they already know no to have worked effectively and basically always providing too little too late. (Dorn, 1996, p. 128)"
