Looking for stats on high school graduates vs. dropouts
Photos and Story by Dana Haynes
I’m looking for a stat. I know I’ve read it before, but I can’t remember where.
I’m looking for dollar figures on the “social return on investment” we get when a student graduates from high school. Comparing grads vs. dropouts as far as potential salaries, taxes paid, expenses such as incarceration rates, divorce, drug and alcohol use.
Is there any reader out there who has those stats? Or who can direct me where to look? Drop me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org, if this ring any bells.
Thanks in advance.
