Random Thoughts: Less Drop Outs

Less Dropouts that 20 years Ago

That is better news that the drop out rate for Canadian teenagers seems to be dropping, at least that is what Stats Canada is saying. The rate dropped from 16% to 8% which heartens me a bit more, but then again, there are not many jobs you can get now with less than a High School education, as well. The scary stat states that 1 in 4 of the drop outs currently were unemployed during the latest financial apocalypse, hence the importance of an education explained in simple terms.

Other Bookkeeping

Remember that I also micro-blog on Twitter, where you can see a whole plethora of good articles and pithy comments by me as well. Twitter feed where I re-tweet many great articles by some of my featured writers (and make the occasional odd or off colour commentary on life (in 140 characters or less)). I am also on Digg as Big Cajun Man and on Stumbleupon as well.

Remember my RSS feed is available too, for those who enjoy reading without looking at my archaic page lay out, and I have added an RSS Comment Feed as well.

This site is iPhone Friendly (and Android & iPod Touch Friendly), enjoy it on the go, in a readable format for the device. If you are reading with an iPhone or Android device, drop me a comment and tell me if this needs any improvements. This site is also in the Kindle US Blog list, if you are interested, not available in Canada yet (because no Blogs are available in Canada on a Kindle?!?).
