Rochester High School officials credit the New Tech format with helping boost the graduation rate from 70 percent to 92 percent in the last five years. In your view, how important is a high school degree?
6% 1. Not very. All you need is luck. There is always welfare.
2% 2. Helpful, but overrated.
4% 3. No opinion.
88% 4. Absolutely vital, and more so than ever. Starting ones adult life without at least a high school diploma is foolish and shortsighted. It means lower income, and more expense for those who are willing to work.
