Maybe Warren County should start worrying about the drugs infesting the "city" and maybe they can figure out why the kids around there aren't worried about their education!!! You learn by what you see!!! All I see in Warren County is a very sad example!! Just my opinion....

Frugal, you took the words right out of my mouth! Why study hard and enter the work force when you can be a leach on society and access all of the free handouts? These people always have top of the line cell phones and shopping carts full of steaks and Mountain Dew. All the while I'm paycheck to paycheck and buying generic brand everything!

The good news for drop outs is they can work for the WTO. A basic understanding and working knowledge of English and grammar are not required.

When the parents dont work, and it becomes a lifestyle to collect money from the government, the kids will assume that it is normal. They will do what their parents do. So there is no reason for school. This is what comes from an entitlement society

It's a combination of things really including the high-stakes testing and more students who are coming from homes who don't put emphasis on the importance of education among other things. However, we are often compared to China and why we can't compete with their kids educationally, but their students can "drop out" usually after what we would consider 8th grade. Those who don't feel suited for school, don't go on with higher education.

That is a lot of drop outs. I graduated from a much larger school in a much rougher area and only two people dropped out. Warren needs to look into why so many are skipping out.
