Arizona dropouts equal $7.6B loss of economic activity

According to a new report by the Arizona Mayors Education Roundtable, the more than 18,000 Arizona students who dropped out of high school this year will produce $7.6 billion less economic activity over their lifetimes than if those same students had graduated.

The report finds that cutting the dropout rate in half would generate $3.8 billion more in economic benefits to the state for each graduating class.
