Americans have been irritated about our government's over spending. Our government has also been cutting education programs that will effect us in the long run. Many high schools in the past have dropped out of high school and currently more and more high school students are dropping out of high school. The mounting dropout rate is causing more and more strain on our economy:
1. Reduced revenue-dropouts produce less revenue for our government. Due to the lack of education most dropouts are not able to earn higher incomes. Dropouts earn $1 million less in their life time than high school graduates.
2. High school dropouts are more likely a burden on taxpayers due to the lack of availability of employment or higher paying jobs they have to depend on welfare and food stamps.
3. Dropouts are most likely greater to go to prison which cost taxpayers more. Please read this article: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/10/09/education/09dropout.html?_r=0
4. Dropouts cause a less skilled labor market causing corporations to outsource to other nations.
By developing solutions in your community to reduce dropouts can help our nation reduce spending, reduce crime and improve the employment rate.
As Americans we can not longer depend on our government to improve our American economy. Together we can help save trillions of dollars. Sign this petition to show your support in reducing the dropout rate.
