The theoretical foundation that grounded this study was Authors' expectancy theory, which stipulates that what people expect to occur …

With the respective dropout rates as the dependent variable, seven independent variables are used accordingly in order to provide as much explanatory power as possible. At the 10 percent significance level, four of seven variables are statistically significant with an adjusted R2 of .374.

The model finds that the percentage of blacks in the population, university access, the unemployment rate and single female-headed households to …
