Drop Out Law Drop Out Law Presentation Transcript

  • Drop Out Law By: Jacob Page Final Project
  • Finish School
    • Kids should stay in school until they graduate so that they can get the best opportunities to succeed in the future.
  • Created In 1903
    • The Drop Out Law was set at 16 in 1903, to accommodate kids that worked on farms and in factories.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • New Plan
    • With the new law the student has to have a plan to complete their education before leaving the traditional classroom.
  • New Plan Includes:
    • The plan :
      • Work Study
      • Night School
      • Preparing for the equivalency Test
      • Alternative Programs
  • 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.
  • Less $
    • Adults between the age of 25 to 34 who dropped out earn a lot less than the ones who graduated.
  • Working While In School
    • Yet some kids that are still in school, are already in the workforce.
  • What They Get Into…..
    • Rates of teen pregnancy, substance abuse, and crime, are significantly higher among high school dropouts.
  • Prison?
    • Nearly 80% of prisoners in America are high school dropouts.
  • The Bill
    • States that if someone wants to leave high school, they must have a plan to work on there schooling in another way.
  • The Bill Critics
    • Some parents think that the bill takes away the rights of parents to decide when their child's schooling is done.
  • The Bill Supporters
    • Others say that it gives parents responsibility since they have to help there child find an alternative schooling plan.
  • 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.
  • Video
  • Video Notes
    • So stay in school because these kids didn’t and they got into bad things.
  • My Opinion
    • Kids should stay in school until they graduate to get the best out of their opportunities in the future.
