School dropouts: a commentary and annotated bibliography by S. M Miller( Book )

5 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Research on school dropouts is handicapped in the following areas--definition of the dropout population, inconsistent methods of data collection, inadequate research designs, community variation, variation in type of dropout, and knowledge of the process of dropping out. Dropout groups should be clearly defined, and variation in these groups should be emphasized. School records should not be relied on too heavily. Extensive interviews are effective. Community variations should be considered and generalizations should not be made without these considerations. Research should emphasize the process of dropping out instead of the properties of school dropouts. The interpretation of results is deeply affected by the elements that produced the research reports. Some things to be considered are--dropout rates, sex, racial and ethnic background, family type, age of dropouts, intelligence and achievement, grade attainment, and reasons for leaving or staying in school. High-aspiring dropouts who return to school have generally been neglected in research. Training and change at the teacher level is most effective when it is coupled with change at the administrative level. The success of many projects in low-income schools rests with organizational change rather than with the adoption of specific packages of program. An annotated bibliography of research on dropouts is included. Major areas are-- statement and definition of the problem, social characteristics, profile of the dropout in the school setting, post-dropout attitudes and experiences, action program and recommendations, and bibliographies on dropouts. A third section contains annotated references and methodology

Too late to patch : reconsidering second-chance opportunities for Hispanic and other dropouts by S. M Miller( Book )

4 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report examines the following three aspects of Hispanic employment: (1) the consequences of leaving school without skills; (2) at-risk Hispanic youth as workers; and (3) the challenge of providing practical, rewarding jobs. Among the conclusions are the following: (1) several categories of at-risk Hispanic youth can receive long-range benefits from programs tailored to their realities; (2) serving these youth is both manageable and affordable, while failing to serve them is costly in both human and economic terms; and (3) the existing programs, such as the Job Training Partnership Act (jtpa), do not meet the needs of significant numbers of young Americans. Strategies are proposed for improving Hispanic education and employment. Fundamentally new systems that emphasize accountability must be designed to accommodate the employment and career needs of tomorrow's youth, and the labor needs of tomorrow's employers. An appendix presents the results of a study of the scope and limitations of public employment and training services for Hispanic youth dropouts. The following supplements to the appendix are included: (1) reasons reported by Hispanic youth from leaving high school, by sex; (2) the jtpa eligible and served population, and percentage that are Hispanic in selected service delivery areas, both by service delivery area and by state; and (3) the survey instrument. References are included. (Bjv)

Atmospheric chemiluminescence : COCHISE and FACELIF experiments( Book )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the last four years, many experiments have been performed in the COCHISE facility. Each of these experiments has measured a fundamental chemical quantity such as a radiative branching ratio, a quenching rate coefficient or a product vibrational energy distribution. These measurements are then provided for incorporation into the various atmospheric radiation codes such as NORSE, ARC, and AARC, where they provide a solid experimental footing for modeling the complex chemical system of the upper atmosphere. Keywords: Nitric oxide; Nitrous oxide; Nitrogen; Carbon monoxide; Carbon dioxide branching ratio; Multiphoton ionization; Vibration population distribution; Rotational band heads. (kt)
