The problem, source of data, and procedure. As a nation grows and the states that compose the nation develop and improve , it is quite natural that the leaders, especially tile loaders in education, become concerned if there are many of the youth leaving school before they have gained the knowledge to help them cope with the stress and strain of the world about them. The problem of the school drop-outs has been of concern to educators since the beginning of our secondary schools . In California this problem has increased with the tremendous influx of population and from all indications will continue to grow if steps are not taken by individual school districts to do something about it. It is necessary, therefore, to get information regarding local areas.
