Stay In School!!

You need your education to get ANYWHERE in life!

Think about this when you go to make an un-smart decision!

It'a been known for years that young people who do not earn a high school diploma face many problems later in life than people who graduate.Dropouts are more likely to be unemployed,have poor health,live in poverty,be on public assistance, and be single parents.National leaders have demanded that schools,communities,and families take major steps to stop students from dropping out, but the dropout rate remains high, every 29 seconds another student gives up on school, and becomes on of the million dropouts. There are at least 7,000 dropouts a day!


What defines a dropout??

Dropping out is defined as leaving school without a high school diploma or General Educational Development GED certificate as defined by the National Center for Education Statistics.
