L’impact de la dépression et de l’expérience scolaire sur le décrochage scolaire des adolescents
This longitudinal study examined the predictive impact of depression and school experience (school performance, teacher’s support, peer’s affiliation and involvement in the classroom) on dropping out of school. The sample consisted of 537 students (277 boys and 260 girls) with an average age of 13.0 years. The results confirm that depression during high school distinguish dropouts from persevering students. Furthermore, our results showed the protective effect of school performance within depressed adolescents. Our findings suggest the importance of dropout prevention among depressed students.
