B - School Dropout

Project Name:
High School Dropout Rates

Client / Client contact information:
Child Trends
https://www.childtrends.org/indicators/high-school-dropout-rates

Project:
Create a piece of art that promotes an awareness around the continuing need to keep kids in school

Background / Overview:
For  this indicator, high school dropouts are defined as individuals, ages  16 to 24, who were not currently enrolled in school and had not  completed high school or obtained a GED. Overall, the dropout rate has  declined considerably, from 15 percent in 1970 to 6 percent in 2016.

What is the objective, the purpose of the art piece?
Young  adults who have not graduated from high school are incarcerated at  higher rates than those with higher levels of educational attainment. It  is likely that the estimates of dropout rates, especially those from  the past few decades, would be slightly higher if institutionalized  civilians were included in these estimates, although it is not clear by  how much.

What do we want to say?
This indicator uses the  “status” high school dropout rate,[7] which measures the percentage of  young adults ages 16 through 24 in the civilian, non-institutionalized  population who were not enrolled in a high school program and had not  received a high school diploma or obtained an equivalency  certificate.[8] Note that this measure does not include youth in prison  or in the military.

Target Market?
Students and parents

Additional info & insights:
Male  youth and young adults are more like than their female counterparts to  have dropped out of high school. In 2016, 7 percent of males ages 16 to  24 were high school dropouts, compared with 5 percent of females.  Although males comprise roughly half of the population in this age  group, they make up 59 percent of high school dropouts. In recent years,  males have been more likely to drop out, but female youth were more  likely to drop out of school prior to 1980

Production Information and Job Specs:
Final  Design is up to you, remember you are completing an installment piece  that will be displayed in various exhibit halls & public spaces.
