Every year, only 69% American high school seniors earn their diploma. 1.3 million high school students fail to graduate on time.
Upon entering the 6th grade, middle class kids have spent about 6,000 more hours learning than kids born into poverty. This is equal to 5 years of formal learning.
Only 30% of low-income (bottom quintile) children make it to the medium quintile or above as adults.
In 2006, families in the top quintile spent $8872 per child on enrichment, vs $1315 per child by families in lowest income quintile - a steadily increasing gap since 1972.
Only 15% of young people in the US (84 million) participate in after-school programming.
Less than half of American students - 46% - finish college.
Only 20% of employers feel they can find enough qualified candidates.

In the workplace, 84% of current jobs and 90% of new jobs require some or more college or postsecondary education.
NYC currently serves only one in four middle schoolers with after school programming, and 273 schools don’t have comprehensive after school programs.
