Stay in School

Over a lifetime, a high school dropout working full-time will earn $300,000 less than a high school graduate, and more than $1 million less than a college graduate. It’s easy to see that if you want to do well graduating is what you’ve got to do first. Here are a few more good reasons why you should stay in school:

Reason #1

High school dropouts are four times more likely than college graduates to be unemployed.

Reason #2

Graduating from high school will most likely determine how well you live for the rest of your life.

Reason #3

On average, high school graduates earn $175 more per week than high school dropouts. College graduates earn $368 more per week than high school graduates.

The big lesson here?

You’ve got a lot to lose by giving up, and everything to gain by being serious about school.
