If You Drop-Out Of High School, You’ll Be Less Healthy

| 1 Comment

Science Daily has just reported on a study that says if you drop out of high school, you’ll have 5.1 fewer years of “perfect health.”

Of course, teenagers aren’t particularly known for examining long-term consequences of their actions, but this might one more piece of information to share with students along with teaching about the economic impact of dropping-out (see “How Much Is A College Degree Worth?”).

Thanks to Inside School Research for the tip.

  1. It would be interesting to see if that campaign would work. Have the anti-smoking campaigns continued to work with teens?

    By the way, Happy Holidays!
