The reason the drop out rate is so high nationwide is three-fold.

1. People run out of money, grants, and loans and can not complete their degrees.

2. People apply for schools just to get the grants and loans and then show up just long
enough to collect the check and blow it on drugs, booze and whatever.

3. Colleges are so greedy for this grant and loan money of which they are sure to get
paid before the student gets his hands on it that they admit students without even the
rudimentary reading and writing skills necessary to legitimately graduate highschool.
