dc.description.abstractThe Latino male high school dropout rate is one of the most pressing and least researched aspects of the dropout crisis in the United States. Dropping out of high school prior to graduation probably has one of the most negative impacts on the work prospects of these young men as well as the future of their families and the well-being of their communities. Although there are many studies that address Latino high school dropout rates, there is limited data focusing on male Latino perceptions of ways their schooling experiences may influence their academic decisions. This study examines Latino male dropouts’ perceptions of their K-12 school experiences and explores how these experiences might have an effect on their decision to drop out of school.
