Resume of the Future
Statistics show that Aboriginals completing a post-secondary program will earn $1,000,000 (one million dollars!) more in lifetime earnings than someone who drops out of high school. If an Aboriginal drops out of high school, he immediately gives up about $516,855 in lifetime earnings.*
A new, fully loaded Ford F150 XLT Supercab, 4x4 with a 5.41 V-8 engine costs $38,600. So, dropping out is the equivalent
of buying 13 of them and pushing them off a cliff.*
