For district and school professionals, education agencies, teachers-in-training, and others involved with schools, Lehr et al. (Institute on Community Integration, U. of Minnesota) offer a guide to decreasing the rate of school dropouts, while increasing the graduation rate. They describe prevention program planning, dropout rates calculation, reasons and risk factors for dropping out, intervention programs--choosing, implementing, and evaluating. In each chapter, the book includes "action tools" such as forms, questionnaires, student interview guides and checklists, and progress reports; an appendix contains an annotated list of links.
