"Kids are dropping out of high school for a simple, even oddly compelling reason. Kids in the U.S. don't believe that education is relevant to their future. The way to make education relevant is to show kids how to succeed, do well, prosper, and even how to get rich if that is what they want (legally). That means financial literacy, free enterprise and capitalism, ownership, opportunity and entrepreneurship. This is the movement called 5MK (www.5MK.org)."
