When it comes to students dropping out, the City of Brotherly Love is actually the Metropolis of Scholastic Sorrow. Less than 47 percent of the freshmen who made up the city’s Classes of 2000 through 2005 actually made it to graduation; between 30 percent and 35 percent of their respective classmates dropped out. The rest were either still enrolled or had transferred out of their respective schools; they will likely drop out too.

Check out this map, originally in the original Unfilled Promise report co-authored by Johns Hopkins researchers Robert Balfanz and Ruth Curran Neild — part of their long-term research on developing early indicators of potential dropouts. Then consider how we can address these issues block by city block, no matter where you live.
