  • Dropouts were more than twice as likely as high school graduates to slip into poverty in a single year and three times more likely than college graduates to be unemployed in 2004
  • Dropouts are more than eight times as likely to be in jail or prison as high school graduates
  • Dropouts are four times less likely to volunteer than college graduates, twice less likely to vote or participate in community projects, and represent only 3 percent of actively engaged citizens in the U.S. today
  • The government would reap $45 billion in extra tax revenues and reduced costs in public health, crime, and welfare payments if the number of high school dropouts among 20-year olds in the U.S. today, which numbers more than 700,000 individuals, were cut in half

The Coast Guard says it has narrowed the search area for two NFL players and another man whose overturned boat was found off the Florida Gulf Coast.

Coast Guard Capt. Timothy Close says the search area is "substantially smaller," based on where they found the boat and a survivor Monday. Searchers had previously covered 16,000 square miles.

Nick Schuyler was clinging to the boat about 35 miles off Clearwater. The former University of South Florida player told rescuers that the boat was anchored when it flipped Saturday evening in rough seas. He says the others aboard got separated from the boat.

The boat belongs to Oakland Raiders linebacker Marquis Cooper. He, free-agent defensive lineman Corey Smith and former South Florida player William Bleakley remained missing.
