High School Dropouts
Most high school dropouts are “remarkably persistent” in their drive to complete their education, and nearly 60 percent eventually earn a high school credential, according to a study by Jobs for the Future, a Boston-based nonprofit organization.
The report argues that the education system is failing young people twice, by neglecting to engage them in learning and then offering them inadequate options for completing their studies.
