Editorial: Drop Out Rate

When nearly one out of every two of our high school students drop out before graduating, we all have a problem and we all need to help solve it.

We need to offer more magnet quality programs in all schools.

We need to look at enhancing teaching methods.

We need to be actively involved parents.

If more students graduate, more command a higher income, and more tax money is available to help support students!

If more students graduate, less tax money is needed for social services resulting from drop out issues.

Alabama is poised to be a national leader this century in so many areas. We will never realize our true potential if we continue to allow our drop out rate to be a national leader.
