"We're living in a 'Dropout Economy,' and it's not the post-apocalyptic, Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome fantasy that seems to fuel conservative dreams of a government-free utopia. This Dropout Economy comes at a huge cost in lost wages and lost revenue. ... The report doesn't say much about why so many college students drop out, but the things some students are doing to pay tuition is a clue."
