In recent years, the number of high school students in Taiwan refusing to go to school (Japan: futoko) is nearly 22,000 per year, of which 50% are the main reason for lack of interest. To help maladjusted students find their way back to school, Taiwan's Ministry of Education promotes the "Adaptive Transfer Program" for 12-year Basic Education, which provides adaptive transfer opportunities in the spirit of not giving up on any student.
The purpose of this study was to investigate the system and effectiveness of transferring high school students to other schools due to academic maladaptation in Taiwan. Twelve high school vocational schools in Yilan County, Taiwan, were selected to track and analyze the situation of transferring students to other schools due to academic maladjustment. This study used a mixed research method to conduct a questionnaire survey and qualitative research on 249 high school students who applied for adaptive transfers due to misadjustment each year from 2014 to 2022.
The results of the study were as follows:
1. Adaptive transfer helped maladjusted students change the runway.
2. Successful students had a high level of satisfaction.
3. Most of the students performed well in school after transfer.
4. Most of the students performed well at graduation and further education after transfer.
The conclusion of this study is that transferring to another school through appropriate counseling helps students to solve the problem of incompatibility between students' interests and effectively helps students' academic performance and further education, and achieves each child's potential.
