Why This Indicator Matters

We need the talents and contributions of all learners to be available to our communities. A student's graduation from high school is a direct predictor of future success, and dropping out of school can have immense costs for both the student and the community at large. Young high school dropouts are significantly more likely to face adverse outcomes such as unemployment, living in poverty, receiving public assistance, spending time in prison and experiencing poor health.
