UK To Use More Money Preventing Drop Outs

The University of Kentucky will spend $35 million dollars next year, aimed at lowering drop out rates.
The school's provost calls it a "war on attrition."

The plan includes an early warning system, designed to help UK monitor students who are struggling.

Officials say about 80% of freshmen return to UK for their sophomore year, but only 59% graduate within six years after enrolling at the school.

    A lot of these kids don't care about getting an education. All they are worried about is partying and getting drunk every chance they get and taking advantage of the free ride they are getting from mommy and daddy's money. If they knew what kind of life was in store for them without an education they would have their nose in the books instead of in the bottle.
