Studies show that the number of dropout students from high-schools and colleges are always on the rise. The tendency is expected to increase as long as the US Government stands back from the issue, abstaining itself from the moral responsibility of providing more funds to the State-owned and even to private institutions for more loans and other financial aides for those who require it. And unfortunately, this is attributed towards the remainders of racist feeling among the students with the observations that most of the unfortunate kids are either Black or Latin Americans. And no State is free from this dismal situation the nation is currently facing.
Reasons for the excessive increase of dropout rate
The most important factor which contributes to this astounding dropout rate as one expert observes is the impersonal nature of high schools. Students fail to find a connection between their future career and the school. Furthermore, being quite big in size, the schools fail to give personal attention to students which may badly affect those who require interaction to excel in classes. And this situation presents great challenges to the nation with increased rate of unemployment and even lower standards of living. And a bit more optimistic analysis shows that if this situation is taken care of, the Government is sure to enjoy great profit in the form of reduced expense for welfare institutions and correction facilities.
A few simple solutions
A number of programs are prevalent in the entire country with varying rates of success. If the school becomes small enough facilities which ensure individual attention to each student, the problem is likely to be reduced to a great extent. The attempt to establish a connection with the studentís aspirations of future too can have great positive impact on the mindset of students. The student should be allowed to enjoy the freedom of choice with regard to their academic decisions. Despite this dire threat, there is hope for a better future, the State-run programs have managed to reduced the dropout rate among teenagers to a great extent, they still continue.
