Why there are so many Drop - outs from US educational institutes? In Washington D.C. alone it is over 50%?

Is it a social problem which will have a national repurcation later?

    The present American society is under going a very crucial stage of their growth as a super power in the world. It is the melting pot of so many varied ethnic groups from various corners of the world. But due to crisis of faith there has been no assimilation of culture and faith and there is a visible loss of meaning and purpose of human life that the present educational system has failed to impart.

    Hence, the adolescents and the youth are left to themselves like a paddle less boat which gets carried away with the stream of time with out a destination.

    It is a social crisis of national dimension which can be contained by timely interference with an integrated national policy, otherwise it would be too late to review and repent.

    In the case of some of them they get into the criminal world which is far more proitable then the regular world. Your high school diploma allows you to stock shelves at K-Mart for $6 an hour. Being a crack dealer or crack maker can buy you a Lexus or Mercedes, so can getting into Prostitution of Pole Dancing, which is a more legal activity that is also very profitable for a pretty girl. That needs no diploma!

    They have no reason to educate themselves when they can stay on welfare their whole lives for free.
