Analysis on issues impacting Belmont.
Did you know that in Belmont (according to the NYC Department of Health), less than 50% of high schoolers in Belmont graduate high school? Compared with the nationwide average, students who live in Belmont are less likely to graduate high school and college.
According to Theclassroom.com and Accelerationacademy.org, this is a problem as not graduating high school is linked to several detrimental effects including: incarceration, lack of job opportunities and lower health rates. As a result, certain communities, including Belmont, are full of crime, health issues, poverty and the lack of opportunities among students.
Some people may say that the graduation rate issue is okay.
