53% of Hispanic girls get pregnant atleast once before the age of 20. 51% of Black girls...19% of White girls.

78% of 840,500 US Gang Members are minorities.

The BOP has a positive implication for education because it will continue to make more opportunities for students whoare not initially provided with the right resources. As education is the core of our nation, it is important that weopen windows for students to gain access to success in the classrooms.Without programs like The BOP, students will be left in the cold, striving to makeends meet on thier own, allowing the odds to beat them.
