Each year, almost ONE-THIRD of all public high school students—1.2 million—fail to graduate with their class.  That’s one student every 26 seconds.

There are nearly 2,000 HIGH SCHOOLS with less than 50% graduation rates concentrated in 50 large cities in 15 primarily southern and southwestern states.

Over the past two decades, increased percentages of students have completed high school (from 69% in 1980 to 84% in 2000). At the same time, among persons aged 25 or older, fewer Black and Hispanic students eventually complete. (Bureau of the Census, Table A-2)

The U.S. Department of Education has provided a free online dropout prevention practice guide designed for schools and school districts.
