Dropout Statistics in the USA (2006)


  • Almost 1 out of 3 public high school students did not reach graduation in 2006.

  • About 67% of prison inmates in the US were high school dropouts.

  • Almost 50% of Latinos and African Americans did not graduate in 2006.

    • Therefore, race and other “risk factors” can be an indicator of identifying at-risk students.
