About this title


A self-help manual for the potential high school dropout, discussing how to improve study skills, handle various school-related problems, and decide whether dropping out is the best solution.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 7 Up Giving "sound advice on everything from how to make an honest decision about dropping out to how to study for tests to where to look for help with personal problems" is a big order, but Wirths and Bowman-Kruhm manage to do a fair job. They approach their readers with the idea of making informed choices that put them in charge of their own lives, rather than just drifting along. The book is written in a question-and-answer format, enlivened by Stren's scratchy cartoons. The information offered on studying, approaching homework, reading, remembering, writing reports, and taking tests is sound and realistic, and suggestions are given for seeking outside help. The authors encourage most students to stay in school, and tell those who are considering quitting to explore carefully the options that they will have as drop-outs, such as interviewing others who have left school. The question with such a self-help book is whether those in need of its advice are likely to approach their problems so rationally as to seek it out in the library, but I Hate School could become a useful tool for guidance counselors or study skills/reading classes. Those needing more in-depth information on certain aspects of the topic should try Sara Gilbert's How to Take Tests (Morrow, 1983) or Eugene Ehrlich's How to Study Better and Get Higher Marks (Crowell, 1976; o.p.). Joyce Adams Burner, formerly at Spring Hill Middle School, Kans.
