• Each year in Louisiana schools there are over 300,000 disciplinary actions taken on students resulting
in thousands of school days missed.
• During the 2006-2007 school year, 402 students from Orleans parish dropped out of school. Where are they now?
• Louisiana incarcerates more people per capita than any other state in the Union.
HELP US STOP school pushouts, increase graduation rates and lower incarceration rates amongst our youth!
