5 Indicators that a child might drop out of high-school
- Bored : More than 45% who did not finish 9th grade report that classes were boring.
- Fallen Behind: Children with too many absences have a hard time catching up.
- Peer Pressure: Kids are very influenced by friends. If your child is around kids who show no intrest in school, then they are likely to have the same attitude about school.
- Lack of Rules: Nearly 40% of students who dropped out of school say that there were not enough rules at home.
- Failing in School: If they aren't performing well, they are more likely to give up and quit.
The good news is that parental involvement is reportedly a game-changer for many kids. Students who have dropped out of school describe a process, not a single event. Everyone in the educational process can be that influential person and attempt to stop a student from dropping out, but they need parental support.
