Recent research suggests that almost one-third of California students will never graduate from high school-and about half of the state's minority students will fail to do so. These dropout rates hold stark implications for the economic and social welfare of the students who fail to graduate and of the state. This study investigated why students drop out by asking 133 predominantly Latino California ninth graders in five high schools across the state about the factors they see as motivating them toward or alienating them from finishing high school. The study compared students at-risk of dropping out - those who had failed at least one class or had been absent at least 12 days duringthe semester (40% of the sample) with their more resilient peers.
