"A New Model for Higher Education: Can We Meet the Demand Before They Vote with Their Feet" by Hal Plotkin, Senior Policy Advisor, Office of the Under Secretary, United States Department of Education."I...stopped out of high school when I was about 14...because of desperate problems in our family. It was a single parent family. We grew up on welfare and food stamps and had no money and often no medical care. My sister and I went to work in the same pizza parlor having dropped out of high school.
