A new report from the Center for Labor Market Studies at Northeastern University finds that the average high school dropout will have a negative net fiscal contribution to society of nearly $5,200. In contrast, the average high school graduate generates a positive lifetime net fiscal contribution of $287,000 from ages 18-64. A copy of the report, The Consequences of Dropping Out of High School: Joblessness and Jailing for High School Dropouts and the High Cost for Taxpayers, can be found at: http://tinyurl.com/yzga2c9.
