Research brief

Most studies have found that falling out is associated with risk factors in several distinct domains: academic, individual, family-related, and school-related. Local M-DCPS District information were utilized to analyze certain demographic and instructional variables as they relate to pupil dropout status. The findings corroborate those from the literature, in which large dropout rates were found for nonHispanic Dark pupils, pupils entitled to free/reduced cost lunch, and pupils with disabilities. Furthermore, students who were kept or were absent were found to be in a greater risk of dropout compared to their counterparts. Studies in different districts/states conducted on the effect of prevention programs on dropout rates imply that some apps have a tiny positive impact on pupils' dropout prices. In general, findings suggest the quality of program execution is frequently more significant than the particular kind of application where students take part. What's more, some studies have found that pupils benefit both from involvement in dropout prevention programs irrespective of their sex and ethnicity. Strategies which have been widely recognized as effective elements of dropout prevention programs are also outlined in this report.
