Guy Dropouts in College

I feel like the statistics of more female graduates than the males is right on track. Just with the mindset you can already think of many reasons to which this is true. Not only can you see it in the past, but also you can see it on the present with a vast majority of people saying comments on their Facebook about how school is not worth it.
