Young women who drop out of high school are more likely to become pregnant at earlier ages and are more likely to be single parents. Dropouts are more likely to receive public assistance than graduates of high school. Dropouts comprise a disproportionate percentage of the nation's prison and death row inmates.

High school dropouts are four times as likely to be unemployed as those who have completed four or more years of college. Graduating from high school will determine how well you live for the next 50 years of your life. High school graduates earn $143 more per week than high school dropouts. College graduates earn $336 more per week than high school graduates ($479 more per week than high school dropouts). Dropouts are more likely to apply for and receive public assistance than graduates of high school
