The Silent Epidemic: Perspectives of High School Dropouts


"A primary purpose of this report is to approach the dropout problem from a perspective that has not been much considered in past studies of the students themselves. These efforts were designed to paint a more in-depth picture of who these young people are, why they dropped out of high school, and what might have helped them complete their high school education. We wanted to give their stories and insights a voice, and to offer our own views on next steps, in the hope that this report could be a further wake-up call to educators, policymakers, other leaders, and the public to summon the national will to address the high school dropout epidemic."
