For most Americans graduating high school seems like another event or stepping stone in life. Everyone and their brothers seem to have a high school diploma in the states. As Americans we rarely take a glimpse at national statistics and the reality that having a high school education is a blessing and something to cherish.
For example, according to UNICEF in Uganda in 2012 only 18.7 % of women and 16.2% males attend high school. In that same year of 2012, the USA had an all time high graduation rate of 80% according to the Washington Post. What a drastic difference!
