Graduation Rates for Students of Limited Financial Resources

In a recent report by the National Center for Educational Evaluation and the U.S. Department of Education entitled “Dropout Prevention”, the following figures were reported: “Each year more than half a million young people drop out of high school, and that rate has stayed consistent for the past 30 years despite increased spending on education… While dropping out typically occurs during high school, the disengagement process may begin much earlier… During their middle school years, students interest in school and their academic skills may begin to lag, so that by the time students transition to high school, students who are at risk of dropping out may need more intensive individual support to re-engage them.” This phenomenon is an even bigger issue when dealing with low income students. Students also tend to lose concepts over summer breaks. Reach for Excellence addresses these challenges.
