Summary

During the summer of 1963 a concerted effort was made to curb the number of school dropouts and increase the number of those who return to school. The principal activities of the campaign, which covered only two summer months, might be classified as promotional, counseling, remedial, preventive, and experimental. Methods of identifying and contacting potential and actual dropouts were established. Each case was treated individually, using the resources of the community to provide a feeling of concern which was found to be overwhelmingly important for most of the young people. Reasons for dropping out, reasons for returning, and various reactions to the summer campaign were accumulated. Among the major reasons for failure to return were--disinterest in school, home responsibilities, unfavorable parent attitudes, peer influence and unhappy home situations. Reasons for returning to school were shown in the student by a new feeling for education, and appreciation of personal interest shown, bad experience as a dropout, and other factors. Specific programs and their results are listed. This program points to a need for school adaptations and total dedication on the part of the school to make school experiences meaningful to the individual child.
