“We must continue working to ensure all children graduate ready for college and careers. We are nowhere near that goal when one in ten Wisconsin students drops out of high school. For Native American and Hispanic students, that number is one in four. For our African American students, one in three. Graduation gaps persist for students with disabilities, English-language learners, and students in poverty. High school dropouts earn less, rely more on social services, and are four times more likely to be unemployed than college graduates. For their futures and ours, we must continue our fight to make Every Child a Graduate prepared for the next step.”

— Wisconsin State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Evers
