Ohio needs to have mentors working with the kids in these high drop out cities. Someone who will be able to show these kids that someone cares about them and wants to help them if they are struggling in certain classes. People who will be able to see that they get meals if that is a problem. Find clothing for them if that is the problem. I think for various reasons these kids have no one to encourage them, help them with studies, clothes and meals. Don't just tell them they will earn less. Show them they won't be able to get a job, and if they do it won't pay enough for them to have a family, or even live on their own. Show them the costs of an apartment, utilities, food, car, medical versus what they can expect in bring home paycheck. Most of all they need to know someone cares and will help them.
