This is great, but one way to increase the grauation rate is to have either legislation or an firm understanding of the business community that it is not helping the drop out rate to hire anyone who does not have a high school diploma.
As long as the business community will hire and keep anyone who has dropped out of school employed then the high school diploma is of little value. If the kids see that they can drop out and get a job even one that pay minimum wage and then have the need for a second similar job to make ends meet then why even bother getting the HS diploma.
Pass legislation to keep the kids in school and make it a violation to hire anyone in this day and age that does not have the HS diploma. If it is a part time job while in school that is one thing, if they are of an age where school was available and should be encouraged to stay in school and finish.
BUT if a kid can drop out and get a job, then what is the reason to stay and finish.
