    Smart Music Entertainment with LAK Henderson

    in Current Events

    Students dropping out of high school continues to be an alarming trend. Data suggests that 7% of U.S. students left high school without a diploma in 2011. While this is down from 9.9% in 2003, this is nothing to celebrate. The black male dropout rate was 8.3% in 2011, and for Hispanic males it was 14.6% that year.  While there are various reasons why a student ends up dropping out of school, for many, there is a long period of disengagement that ensues beforehand. At home, parents should spend more time providing positive guidance, and in the classroom, teachers can continue to find innovative ways to reach students. The famed scholar Booker T. Coleman has said, "What Michael Jordan did on the basketball court, and what the Williams sisters do on the tennis court, black children will be able to do in the classroom." Let's encourage our children to be great, and provide them with the tools to be able to compete in a global economy.
