Big city dropouts and illiterates by Robert A Dentler( Book )

20 editions published between 1965 and 1969 in English and held by 655 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The differences between dropouts and adult illiterates in 131 of the largest cities in the united states were compared to see if these differences were associated with selected features of the local economies and social structures. As a part of the study, a comparative analysis was made of the effects of various programs to prevent or to rehabilitate dropouts and illiterates. The metropolitan communities were ranked in terms of their production of high school dropouts and illiterates. The ranking involved considerations of the economic, demographic, and other social differences between the cities. The investigators sought to answer three related questions--(1) can indicators of the relative performance of big cities with respect to dropout and literacy patterns be devised, (2) when differences due to social and economic background conditions are held constant statistically, what are the correlates of high school withdrawal and adult functional illiteracy, and (3) how are efforts to develop educational or social programs related to community characteristics. The investigators concluded that national and state economic policies, including programs of social insurance, may be of substantial importance in fostering increased educational attainment, while school and welfare programs that attempt to deal directly with dropout prevention or literacy are irrelevant, if not futile. This report was published by the center for urban education, new york, for $3.00. (al)
