Document Number: 8820High School Dropouts in America - Nationwide, about 7,000 students drop out every school day. This statistic may not have been noticed 50 years ago, but the era during which a high school dropout could earn a living wage has ended in the United States. By dropping out, these individuals significantly diminish their chances to secure a good job and a promising future. Moreover, each class of dropouts is responsible for substantial financial and social costs to their communities, states, and country in which they live.
