7,000 people drop out of high school every day.
The reasons why these students drop out are complex, but society tends to perceive these individuals negatively.
However, many of these people had to leave to support family or care for a member of the family, or faced other pressures that justify their decision.
Many of these students still want to learn a skill set that prepares them for the high-skilled careers that are the backbone of today’s economy.
