Algorithms: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

Awesome to see people looking at ways to help. I have wondered what the dropout rate is for freecodecamp, and what can be done to keep people working on the challenges and building confidence. There are many reasons people may drop out, of course, but I am particularly concerned with those who drop out from discouragement, as I suspect they are disproportionately female, and/or people of color, those who are so underrepresented in the tech fields. Perhaps the reason you see more posting for help with the earlier and presumably easier challenges may be that many people who are struggling could be dropping out of the program before reaching the more difficult challenges.
