Fast Fact- June 16, 2017

In 2015-16, Colorado’s dropout rate was 2.3 percent (10,530 students), down slightly from 2.5 percent (11,114 students) in 2014-15. Without a high school diploma, young adults face slim odds of finding a job that pays enough to support themselves or a family, making them twice as likely to live in poverty as those who earn a high school diploma.
