Nearly half of all students in our inner-city schools will drop out. Minority and low-income students have half the opportunity to learn as white, non-Latino students.

These are the statistics that the adults managing our education system provide us. Surveying more than 70,000 students in grades five through 12 in 18 states and the District of Columbia, on topics such as dropout prevention and college readiness.

The results may surprise you: Living in the current, students are focused on the negative, feeling stuck, not hopeful, and generally cynical about their current experiences.

Where Does Student Optimism Go?

  • Living in the current, students are focused on the negative, feeling stuck, not hopeful, and generally cynical about their current experiences;
  • For those 86 percent who believe they have a good job waiting for them, how do we get nearly half of them to realize that a good job requires postsecondary education?
  • These are the statistics that the adults managing our education system provide us;
  • We need to fulfill the promise we have made to every student, that if they work hard and stay in school, success is in their grasp.

But in looking ahead, in looking at life after high school, these same students seem transform into bluebirds of happiness and optimism. They all see high school diplomas in their future, despite the statistics that one in three will drop out.

Over the years, Eduflack has spent a lot of time conducting interviews and focus groups with high school students about their futures. They are bored by the classes, feel disrespected by many teachers, and generally worry about what opportunities may come next.

They persevere because they believe there is a payout at the end of the game. The survey is likely heavy on middle schoolers, and light on high schoolers. Thus the optimism about the future and the hopes for a high school diploma and a good job. So the big question is how we bridge the hope to the reality?

Where Teachers Meet and Learn

If 94 percent of students believe they will graduate, how do we get to the nearly 30 percent that will change their minds before earning that diploma? For those 86 percent who believe they have a good job waiting for them, how do we get nearly half of them to realize that a good job requires postsecondary education? How do we transform the optimism for the future into achievement today? How do we get all students to feel a sense of hope and a right to opportunity?

How do we do better?

We have fathoms to travel before we reach our destination. It is good that students are hopeful, even if they are facing harsh realities today.

But at some point, we need to transform that hope into real action. We need to fulfill the promise we have made to every student, that if they work hard and stay in school, success is in their grasp.

Otherwise, those struggling, stuck, and hopeless students become similarly distraught adults. And we all know the effect that has on our economy, society, and nation. Use Teaching's School Finder to locate schools online and in your area.
