Jun 09, 2010


Lowering the high school dropout rate will greatly increase the economic vitality for some of the nation’s largest metropolitan areas. The results are part of the Alliance’s continuing work linking improved educational outcomes to economic returns. Combined with its release of the forty-five largest metro areas in January, the June 9 release brings the number of cities for which the Alliance has data to over eighty-five. The city-by-city findings include the growth in jobs, home ownership, levels of spending and investment, and car sales that will result from cutting the high school dropout rate in half.
