Up to 40% of students dropping out of some American schools

Even through the stats here may be selective, I am sure there are many schools with low dropout rates, the implications of the next generation growing up unable to do more than menial jobs is frightening.

As one of the biggest changes in our technologically advancing society has been the reduction of blue color jobs, more and more people will fight for declining job opportunities. Its a social bomb, with a growing underclass of poverty stricken and resentment, fueling crime and disorder.

-----------------------
In several of the largest school systems across the country from Baltimore to Cleveland to Atlanta and Oakland, Calif. half of the students are dropping out.

And the problem is not only in the big cities. A recent study by the Department of Education found that 31 percent of American students were dropping out or failing to graduate in the nation's largest 100 public school districts.

The implications from dropping out of high school are enormous, including a higher risk of poverty and even an abbreviated life span.

LOL!
If nearly half of the American kids were dropping out of school I feel quite certain the alarms would have sounded long before now.
Not that the public education systems in large cities are good for much more than social engineering instead of being centers of learning and knowledge, anyway. :P

When one reads the news from another country one is led to believe that country is either a panacia or a pariah, depending on the particular source of information.

Yup, bias based on first hand experience and knowledge and comparing the way things oughta and used to be with the way things are shaping up today.
Other than that I haven't a clue.:P
