Why Is This Important?

Completing high school is essential to finding and keeping family-sustaining employment. In 2014, adults 25 years and older who did not have a high school diploma, had an unemployment rate of 9%, almost twice that of the national average (5%). Those without high school diplomas who do hold jobs as full-time salaried employees, earn just $488 weekly on average, which is significantly lower than the national median of $839 weekly.[1]
