Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between two sets of variables with the first including parental involvement, literacy skills, and socio-economic status and the second including graduation rates, incarceration rates and psychiatric hospitalization rates. The study methodology included three separate multiple regression analyses. Data were collected from archival sources through the Mississippi Department of Education (MDE), Mississippi Department of Mental Health, and the Mississippi Department of Human Services Youth Divisions. The results of this study indicated that socio-economic status has a statistically significant relationship with high school graduation rates and youth psychiatric hospitalization rates in the State of Mississippi.
