  • Transcript

    • 1. Drop Out Law By: Jacob Page Final Project
    • 2. Finish School
      • Kids should stay in school until they graduate so that they can get the best opportunities to succeed in the future.
    • 3. Created In 1903
      • The Drop Out Law was set at 16 in 1903, to accommodate kids that worked on farms and in factories.
    • 4. New Or Old Drop Out Law?
      • New:
        • Have to be 18 to drop out.
      • Old:
        • Had to be 16 to be able to drop out.
    • 5. Old Plan
      • Currently kids just have to meet with the principal about them dropping out, and have a signed approval from a parent or guardian.
    • 6. New Plan
      • With the new law the student has to have a plan to complete their education before leaving the traditional classroom.
    • 7. New Plan Includes:
      • The plan :
        • Work Study
        • Night School
        • Preparing for the equivalency Test
        • Alternative Programs
    • 8. Until Graduation?
      • I think keeping kids in school longer will prepare them more for what comes with being an adult, and set them up for better jobs.
    • 9. Less $
      • Adults between the age of 25 to 34 who dropped out earn a lot less than the ones who graduated.
    • 10. Working While In School
      • Yet some kids that are still in school, are already in the workforce.
    • 11. What They Get Into…..
      • Rates of teen pregnancy, substance abuse, and crime, are significantly higher among high school dropouts.
    • 12. Prison?
      • Nearly 80% of prisoners in America are high school dropouts.
    • 13. The Bill
      • States that if someone wants to leave high school, they must have a plan to work on there schooling in another way.
    • 14. The Bill Critics
      • Some parents think that the bill takes away the rights of parents to decide when their child's schooling is done.
    • 15. The Bill Supporters
      • Others say that it gives parents responsibility since they have to help there child find an alternative schooling plan.
    • 16. Statistics
      • Last year the New Hampshire Department of Education reported a drop out rate of 11.8% statewide, and a total of 2,129 students.
    • 17. Video
    • 18. Video Notes
      • So stay in school because these kids didn’t and they got into bad things.
    • 19. My Opinion
      • Kids should stay in school until they graduate to get the best out of their opportunities in the future.
