A Review of the Literature: Resiliency Skills and Dropout Prevention (2007)

The high school dropout rate is remarkably high in the United States, with estimates that a student drops out every nine seconds. Research on the causes of dropping out reveal reasons as individual as each student, and these forces often act in combination with each other. Resiliency based programs, which help students develop the skills and relationships they need to succeed inside and outside the classroom, can be very effective in preventing high school dropouts. Author: Kelly Hupfeld, 2007
