The Earning Curve
Hundreds of thousands of students consider dropping out of school each year. These students often think they can get ahead now by earning a full-time wage, and that all they need is a few years head start. The harsh reality is that many of these students are giving up on their chance for a successful career.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics produces a series of earnings reports that include a breakdown by education levels, and the results are astounding. These reports evaluated the weekly earnings of adults 25 years of age and older, and they provide a clear picture of why it is so important to complete your education.
