Oregon's High School Dropouts: Examining the Economic and Social Costs. Research Brief
Foundation for Educational Choice
The Foundation for Educational Choice recently commissioned a new study to examine the economic and social costs of Oregon's high school dropouts. Emily House, the study's author, analyzed how dropouts in the state dramatically impact state finances through reduced tax revenues, increased Medicaid costs, and high incarceration rates. House's study describes how much high school dropouts cost Oregon's taxpayers each year, and how much could be saved by increasing the state's graduation rate. This paper presents the key findings of the report. [For the full report " Oregon's High School Dropouts: Examining the Economic and Social Costs," see ED509327.]
