Title:The tax and transfer fiscal impacts of dropping out of high school in Philidelphia city and suburbs
Organization:Philadelphia Youth Network
Short Description:Dropping out of high school imposes very high costs on the individual who drops out of school mainly through poor labor market outcomes. Other costs imposed are restricted access to higher education and training and a weaker voice in the political and electoral system.
Annotation:Dropping out of high school imposes very high costs on the individual who drops out of school mainly through poor labor market outcomes. Other costs imposed are restricted access to higher education and training and a weaker voice in the political and electoral system. The weak labor market outcomes of high school dropouts result in reduced annual earnings, low income levels, a sharply higher risk of poverty, and all the negative personal and family consequences associated with life at the margins of the labor market. However, the costs of dropping out are not borne exclusively by the dropout. Many of the costs of dropping of high school spill over to the local communities: Philadelphia city, Philadelphia suburbs, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and the nation a whole.
