Over 1 million raised to help talented young students achieve their Education Dreams
“Every year, 3,000 youth drop out of high schools in our city. In a prosperous city and province like ours, with one of the best education systems in the world, Alberta has one of the lowest graduation rates in Canada, at 74 per cent. This affects us all, and if we don’t tackle this issue we will all end up paying for it – literally. This is an expensive problem that threatens our city’s economic and social future. Consider this. The estimated annual cost to society per high school dropout is nearly $16,000. This number is tied to earning loss, use of social assistance, health care, crime and tax revenue loss. That’s not $16,000 once – it’s $16,000 per year for the rest of that student’s life. Multiply that by 3,000, and you have a cost to society of $48 million per year in Calgary alone. Supporting the Stay in School program makes sense from an economic and social aspect and is in the best interest of every Calgarian.” Dr. Lucy Miller, President & CEO, Calgary United Way
