School dropouts have always been a problem. Well, those who are likely to face it are not usually aware of the fast-approaching inevitable blow. Consider what the numbers have to say:

  • About 1/3 of students entering Grade Nine this year will fail to graduate from high school in four years.
  • About 92% of students think that they will finish high school; however, the national graduation rate is around 75%.
  • Every year 1.3 million students drop out of school which is 7,000 every day or 1 every 25 seconds.

Highschool dropouts are a drain on our society:

  • School dropouts are 8 times more likely to go to prison than those students who finished high school
  • School dropouts are more likely to qualify for regular welfare payments
  • School dropouts are 59% less likely to vote
  • School dropouts are not qualified enough to fill in about 89% of all vacant positions
  • School dropouts earn less than half as much as college grads

Education really matters! Just think about it:

  • For every 1.0 increase in GPA, potential annual earnings increase by about 9 %.
  • According to the statistics provided by some U.S. manufacturers, 40% of all 17-year-olds do not have math skills and 60% lack reading skills necessary to hold down a production job at a manufacturing company
  • 30 percent of Americans have such a great aversion to math problems that they’d rather clean a bathroom than solve one
  • 70% of hiring managers admit that when screening a new application they firstly look at the GPA results of the candidate.
