A high school diploma is more than just a piece of paper or a personal achievement that you’ve set for yourself. Instead, receiving your high school diploma is the very thing that will either enable or prevent you from getting the career of your dreams or even a basic job.
Why You Need a High School Diploma
As the national unemployment rate continues to remain high, employment competition is even more challenging than ever before. However, the battle to find employment is even tougher for those who haven’t finished high school as the national unemployment rate for those who haven’t graduated rings in at 12 percent.
Not only will you have a more difficult time finding a job if you dropout, but you’ll make far less than those who do have their high school diploma. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, high school dropouts can expect to earn a little over $20,000 annually, which is over $10,000 less than a high school graduate, and nearly $37,000 less than someone who has received their Bachelor’s degree. As a result, high school dropouts are over 30 percent more likely to live their life in poverty when compared to those who have graduated and gone on to receive their Bachelor’s degree.
With these alarming statistics, why risk putting your future at stake by choosing to dropout? San Diego Virtual School is here to help you achieve a strong future by helping you receive your high school diploma online.
