Literature Review The statistics are very troubling for the high school dropout. They show that males are more likely to dropout than females. Reports show that only about 65% of blacks and Hispanics leave secondary schooling with a diploma (Heckman & LaFontaine, 2008). Students become pregnant, get arrested, or must get a job to support family members (Blue, 2011). Nearly one-quarter — 23 percent — of Americans attribute their failure to complete high school to a lack of parental support or encouragement, followed by entering parenthood at 21 percent. Missing too many days of school ranked third at 17 percent. Other reasons for dropping out include failing classes (15 percent), uninteresting classes (15 percent) and suffering from mental illness (15 percent). In USA, it is estimated that in the next ten years twelve million students will leave school without having a diploma and that will cost USA about three trillion dollars (Alliance for Excellent Education [AEE], 2007). students in large cities and rural areas are more likely to drop out than students in the suburbs are; graduation rates in some big cities are less than 40 percent. Students at greatest risk for dropping out are those whose families speak little or no English and whose own knowledge of English is also quite limited (Hardre & Reeve, 2003; L. S. Miller, 1995; National Research Council, 2004; Roderick & Camburn, 1999; Rumberger, 1995; L. Steinberg, Blinde, & Chan, 1984; U.S. Dept. of Education, 1997).

Data Analysis People not in the program (51.1%) did better than those in the program (50.9%)
Evaluation Plan: Will high school students who attend Hear to Help, have a higher graduation rate? Evaluation design: XO According to my statistic my program is NOT significant and it will NOT work.
