In groups are the students who graduate from High School. The students that got good marks on their reports, the class president of the school, the cheer leaders, and the football players are in the In Group of students that graduate from High School. They got good marks in their studies. They were good in behavior from day to day existence, with accomplished goals. This was their norm. They get high paying jobs after graduation, and some go on to College.
High school dropouts are the out group. These students have a very different kind of norm. Some of them drink booze and some take drugs. Their marks are bad in school. Some of them only go to school for fun. Some of them only go to tenth grade in high school. Dropouts do not get high paying jobs. They are looked at as uninteresting and ignorant people. Something should be done to make the out group an In Group.
