Solving the Drop-Out Crisis: One District at a Time

When we consider 8000 students dropout daily and the class of 2013 had in excess of one million dropouts, it’s no wonder that President Obama called this an epidemic.

Atlantic Research Partners completed a thorough analysis of dropouts by surveying 2000 students who had dropped out of high school and conducted research and a literature review to study the most promising practices to retrieve these students that would lead to a meaningful, career and college ready diploma. For a complete copy of this exhaustive report, “Dropping Out: Stereotypes, Reality and Recovery”, click here

Over the coming weeks, we’ll be posting informative strategies for schools and communities to overcome this pervasive challenge.

All this leads us to conclude that we must be committed to helping young people improve their lives and conditions and helping school systems deliver the promise of a high school diploma while they improve their graduation rates because we know – Diplomas Matter.
