One is to have students name jobs that they can “always” do without a diploma.
This will quickly highlight that jobs with the best pay and benefits require a diploma. There may be students who are happy they dropped out, but it is better to get an education and make the best of life.
Parents and teachers don’t stress the fact that staying in school will help students succeed in life.
A 2006 study by the Department of Education found that 31 percent of American students are dropping out or failing to graduate in the nation’s 100 largest school districts.
The goal is to maintain good grades, score high on the SAT test, and keep a positive attitude so colleges and universities will accept you.
Of course it's not as easy at sounds, but it's achievable.
Researchers say they were surprised to find that a majority of 456 dropouts interviewed were not what most people would consider underachieving troublemakers.
One third of the students said they were failing in school, but more than six out of ten were maintaining C averages or better when they quit.
High School Dropouts Entering high school is the beginning of a whole new learning experience.
Transitioning from middle school, high school presents more classes, students, and a bigger campus.
