      WHY:   “The goal of this event is to raise awareness of the alarmingly high dropout rate in the United States and send a powerful message to over 2500 New York City inner city youth encouraging them to make smart choices about their future and to stay in school,” explains E4EA’s Executive Director, Tonya Lewis.

      THE FACTS: “The drop out rate in NYC is at a shocking all time high; 49% of New York City’s Public High School students do not graduate from high school.  Everyday 500 students drop out of NYC high schools. New York State has the highest dropout rate for Black and Hispanic students of any state in the nation. Approximately 7,000 students will drop out of school per school day nation wide. I’m concerned about our future and have asked those committed to sending a message to our next generation to lend their voices.”
