This quantitative correlational study examined societal and academic factors in relation to student persistence for Latino male students. Results showed a significant correlation between persistence and the following factors: household income, mother's education level, number of absences, and GPA. Since the factors seemed to predetermine the student's persistence, results suggest that schools could use these factors to determine which students were at risk of dropping out. Special dropout prevention programs could be implemented to improve student persistence among at-risk students.
