This is very sad, but unfortunately this is true. Too many children are dropping out of school, something must be done to stop this or else there will be no hope for the future. We need to start talking to children and let them know that they truly do matter and let them know that what they do today really does effect tomorrow. Another thing, we have to find another way to get them back intrigued with school. I just graduated four years ago and to me it seemed like our school system sometimes does not care about the students.
