Jonathan Paugh

The status dropout rate declined from 12 percent in 1990 to 7 percent in 2011. The rates of declined for all different races. the white people have went from 9 to 5 percent, the black people have went from 13 to 7 percent , then Hispanics from 32 to 14 percent. The gap between Whites and Hispanics narrowed from 23 percentage points in 1990 to 9 percentage points in 2011. Pennsylvania had the most dropouts between that time. The united state average is 72.8 percent of teens drop out of high school.

I think it is very important to stay in school. It is most important so that you cam get an education. Then if you have a good education you can go to college and get a really good job so that you can make a whole lot of money and have nice things to support your families. But if you drop out you wont have any good things in your life and you could just be working at McDonalds for the rest of your life and I seriously doubt that any of you want that. That is why you need to stay in school and get a good education so you gave have a lot of money and a good life.
