Why Kids Drop Out of High School The high school drop out rate has been called a national crisis. Nearly one-third of all public high school students leave the system before graduating (Swanson 2004) and the problem is more severe among students of color and students with disabilities. (Greene &Winters 2005) Every year, over 1.2 million students drop out of high school in the United States. That’s a student every 26 seconds or 7,000 per day. (dosomething.org) Dropping out of high school is an issue facing many teens today.
An employee also needs to develop the capacity or the skills to perform or work.

It is estimated that over three million students drop outs in the U.S. and a large portion of these are African-American. Education still remains as the major tool for empowerment and the economic, social and personal well-being of citizens in any society.

This was determined by the Project on student debt, a non profit organization. Hard to believe but in 2004 that number has increased by 25% showing that the amount of debt from the increasing tuition is rising at an exponential rate. (Value of a College Degree) While some argue that being tens of thousands in debt is not bad, they tend to forget that this is just for some undergraduates, and for students that wish to pursue the highest education for their degree they must go through many more years of school and tuition. That could mean having debts in the hundreds of thousands for those who
For all that money, we achieve outcomes: 42 percent of students who enter a four-year institution fail to leave that school with a degree within six years, and studies find that many students' improvement in thinking skills is insignificant or nonexistent. Graduates typically leave with mountains of debt and struggle to find work.In a trend that would have been unthinkable ten years ago, Americans are expressing skepticism about higher education—not just with their voices, but also with their pocketbooks and their time. At all but the most elite schools, application numbers are down, and students are increasingly choosing less-expensive schools, starting at community colleges, or otherwise seeking to control costs.Colleges are feeling the pinch. Specially college tuition has become a major issue for the middle class family. It was too high for them, but the education system of college is the same like it was 50 years ago.
On average, only 58% of students in America's 50 largest cities make it to graduation. The decision to drop out is a dangerous one for the student. Dropouts are much more likely than their peers who graduate to be unemployed, living in poverty, receiving public assistance, in prison, on death row, unhealthy, divorced, and single parents with children who drop out from high school themselves. The dropout problem is likely to increase substantially through 2020 unless significant improvements are made. So why students drop out of school and what can be done to decrease the number of dropouts?
