Do Children Drop Out of School in Kindergarten?

In this book, we address five major findings about dropouts:

  • Kindergarten – Dropouts and graduates appear very differently as they enter school and they follow distinct developmental trajectories leading toward school failures and successes.
  • Absenteeism – Compared to graduates, dropouts spend much more time out of school from Kindergarten forward.
  • Middle school (7th & 8th Grades) – Academic performance and absenteeism rates of dropouts and graduates differ noticeably during this period.
  • Ninth grade core courses – Dropouts take more core courses than graduates during the freshmen year of high school and dropouts repeatedly struggle with core academic concepts.
  • Standardized test scores and academic performance – Dropouts perform better on standardized tests than they do in class, and the gap between dropouts’ standardized test scores and classroom performance increases overtime; graduates’ standardized test scores and classroom performance remain relatively consistent over time.

We provide systems-based examples illustrating how to use action research principles to address the problems discussed in the preceding chapters. The purpose of this book is to provide a glimpse into the developmental nature of high school graduates and dropouts from Kindergarten forward and across all academic, family, and behavior variables.
