In Connecticut, 1 in 5 students do not complete high school in 4 years. Over-age and under-credited, many of these students drop out. In 2011, about 9,000 Connecticut students dropped out of school with 41% failing to return the following year. By nearly all measures, the average high school graduate will experience better life outcomes than students who never earn their diploma.
