Dropping out of high school is a serious national, state, and local problem. Students who drop out of high school have fewer options for employment and are at greater risk of low self-esteem. High school dropouts usually end up working low-skilled and low-paying positions with fewer possibilities for advancement. High school dropouts are also more likely to experience health problems and engage in crime than students who graduate from high school.
