Aimless Youth in Indiana

by Sammy Edmonds posted Nov 26 2013 3:15PM
A new study cites an alarming number of young people who are neither in school or working.
 
The Opportunity Nation Coalition says that 15-percent of the nation‘s young people…roughly six million between the ages of 16 to 24…are essentially aimless.  The study cites everything from income equality to college graduation rates to internet access. It also says some of the nation‘s largest cities like New York, Los Angeles and Chicago have some of the largest numbers of idle youth.
 
Figures from the Indiana Youth Institute show the number of jobless and school-less young people in the state hovers around 9-percent.
