Abstract

Dropping out of high school can cause many young adults to turn to criminal activities in an effort to achieve what they want or need. This research uses a retrospective data collection method to find a connection between dropout rates and aggravated assaults. This research can help determine some factors related to children who drop out of high school and commit violent crimes. This will allow for better use of resources from police agencies and school systems.
