A couple weeks ago I attended a two day conference hosted by three community organizations known as The Southwest Creations, Young Women United, and Partnership for Community Action. The workshops focused on the importance of constructing a strong base of counseling for high school students to pursue higher education. Specifically intended to inform high school career counselors from various high schools in Albuquerque about strategies and resources they can utilize to help and support students on their transition to higher education.
Every day, 50 students in New Mexico dropout. One of these high school dropouts could be sitting on either side of you, or scattered throughout the room. One may be a parent, or a brother. High school dropout affects all of us, no matter creed, or race. It also happens to be on the rise countrywide.
