Kids Less Likely to Graduate from HS than Parents

February 6, 2009 at 6:01 pm Leave a comment


The U.S. is the only industrialized country where youths are less likely than their parents to earn a high school diploma.

While most parents dream of providing a better life for their children,  the LA Times reports that students today are actually less likely to graduate from high school than their parents were with one in four kids dropping out before graduation.  Any adult could attest to the difficulty of creating a sustainable income without their most basic high school education, but while the value of a high school education is widely accepted, something is moving in the wrong direction as fewer youth are completing their high school education.    

The OneSeventeen Media team is eager to provide students the tools and resources to help them push through their difficult growing up years.  By aiding their social emotional, communicative and learning skills we can help all kids meet the success of graduating from high school and putting themselves on the track for long-term success and responsible citizenship.
