There is an epidemic in the United States that gets little recognition—the high school dropout crisis. Every 26 seconds another student gives up on school, resulting in more than 1 million American dropouts a year, or 7,000 every day. Today, there are nearly 40 million adults without a high school diploma and there are limited options available for students age twenty-two and older who are looking to return to high school.
