This study is intended to come up with the Scale of the danger in the adolescents' school-dropout. The present dissertation developed the questions and collected them on the base of the potential variables, that consist of the school-dropout of adolescents, and the operational definition of each variable, through the verification of the precedent research and the review of the related literatures. In addition, the interviews for the teachers who have experienced the school-dropouts of adolescents are performed and are analyzed, and then the relevant questions were culled. The Scale developed in this study is composed of 48 questions and 10 factors. The questions which have the same factors and clustered are reflected, and then are discerned into 3 dimensions, that is, the outer attitude, the inner attitude, and the attitude of parents. The Scale of the danger in the adolescents' school-dropout which is contrived through this study is expected to prevent school-dropouts to teenagers and the teachers.
