"Nobody Ever Asked Me Why I Left High School..." A Literature Review of Recent Qualitative Studies About Why Students Leave Conventional School

Wilder Research and High School for Recording Arts interviewed students and young people who left conventional high schools to understand why they left. Despite the geographic and racial diversity in our respondents, the 70 students and young people we interviewed said similar things about why they left conventional school. The similarities in findings between our respondent groups prompted us to examine the degree to which our findings align with findings from other studies that focus on why students leave conventional school.
