Date of Award
Master of Education (MEd)
Determining factors that lead to at risk students dropping out was investigated by interviewing volunteer participants who attended Mt. Blue High School and exited early, not receiving a high school diploma. The results of the study indicated that the majority of participants attributed their failure to graduate in four years to personal or family related factors.
