Description: Why do so many high-school students drop out before graduation? What are the consequences--for them and for Canadian society? Based primarily on a study of 162 early school-leavers conducted by the authors in the mid-1980s, this book examines the reasons behind the decision to drop our; the difficulties that dropouts face in trying to enter the labour market, especially during a period of economic recession; the psychological experience of unemployment or at best marginal work; the relations between early school-leaving and various kinds of deviance; and dropouts own expectations about the future of their lives.
