Educational research has uncovered proven remedies with the potential to lower dropout rates. Yet Colorado’s dropout problem continues at epidemic rates. Approximately 30 percent of Colorado’s students fail to graduate within four years of starting high school. This dropout crisis is costly to our state and is seriously harming children, families, local communities, and the state as a whole. Students without high school diplomas lack the skills and knowledge needed to maintain a sound economy and healthy democracy for future generations.
