    Re: Cost of High School Dropouts Draining US Taxpayer

    [QUOTE=Harry Guerrilla;1060041980]Just to summarize, some drop outs are already mature enough to start life.
    Amirite. [/QUOTE

    Yes, but necessity makes you prepared for life...I went on to get an associates degree plus...never fully graduated...I had a full time career 4 kids another one coming...and it didnt benefit me at that point..I needed to moonlight more than i need a bs...
    Admittedly it was a different time then...this was before the unmitigated greed of corporations and ceos that have taken mostly all the good paying working class jobs and shipped them elsewhere to suck another buck out of america...I could leave my house at 7am and have a choice of jobs by 10am....that was the real america by the way...not this america where only 1% of the country wants to assure they are the only ones that eat...

    Repercussions for what? For saying tough noogies to all those who dropped out? They are looking at the repercussions...not me.

    It may be their fault, but we all pay the tab in one way or another.

    Indeed, I agreed that there are repercussions for ones actions which would include dropping out.

    I know some students at my university that enroll in easy majors like art. They take out thousands of dollars in student loans and live like hippies (the don't come to class and make failing grades). They graduate and then go out of school with tons of debt and no job (due to their fields being saturated). They cost the American taxpayer as well. A lazy mentality and a lazy lifestyle is wrong, it costs the taxpayers money, but each person should be judged on a case by case basis instead of applying a mentality to an entire group of people.
    While there are likely many people who meet this pathetic example, most do not.

    Besides, you don't graduate by not coming to class and making failing grades.
