« This qualitative study describes the educational experiences of five female Filipino students in public schools in Montreal. My goal is to understand why some female Filipino teens leave school prematurely, while others manage to persevere in their studies. I conducted open-ended interviews in English and Tagalog to examine the reasons and personal motives underlying their school disengagement. The participants described their difficulties in adjusting to the Quebec educational system and how their peers have influenced them to quit school. They also discussed how economic stress can push teens from the Philippines to abandon their studies for work. My analysis is shaped primarily by Pierre Bourdieu’s (1986) concept of capital. The results suggest the importance of positive family relationships and caring educators in keeping female Filipino students in school. » (p. 2)
