The paper looks at how Schwartz (n.d.) indicates that there are numerous reasons why students elect to drop out of high school and discusses how the National Center for Education Statistics provides evidence that high school drop out rates in the nation are higher after the age of 16 and within the African-American population. However, the paper discusses how a presidential report of the 1980s entitled "A Nation At Risk" and the subsequent passage of the 2001 No Child Left Behind Act suggests that high school drop out rates may occur at high rates because the educational system fails to provide an adequate education to the students of the country and that until this situation is altered, many students believe that there is no reason for completing their high school education.
