Of all those who graduate from high school, only one in five enrolls in a Texas public university the following fall. Close to one in four enrolls in a two-year college, but more than half will not enroll at all. – Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, February 2003

Overall, as reported by the U.S. Department of Labor in 2003, high school dropouts are 72 percent more likely to be unemployed than high school graduates – Lehr et al., 2004

Weak school holding power has cost Texas citizens almost half a trillion dollars in foregone income, tax revenues, increased welfare, job training, unemployment and criminal justice costs. – Intercultural Development Research Association, 2003
