​​Reasons to Stay in School

 Better Jobs

Almost all jobs that pay more than minimum wage require a high school diploma.

 More Opportunities

A high school diploma also offers more lifetime opportunities outside of the job sector.  You’re more likely to live above the poverty line, which means you’ll be able to apply for loans to buy a home or pay for higher education.

 Additional Incentives

Graduating from high school will help boost your confidence and self-esteem.  It also helps protect your physical health, because you’re more likely to have access to medical care and have the funds to pay for it.  When you graduate, you’re also a role model to your child.
