The National Women's Law Center just released the groundbreaking new report,
When Girls Don't Graduate, We All Fail: A Call to Improve High School Graduation Rates for Girls. The report finds that one in four girls drops out of school, and that one-quarter to one-third of female dropouts say that pregnancy or becoming a parent played a role in their decision to drop out. Female dropouts earn significantly lower wages than male dropouts, are at greater risk of unemployment, and are more likely to rely on public support programs.
