Communities in School Town Hall: Powering the National Graduation Rate
How can we attain the goal of reaching a national graduation rate of 90%? American Graduate will present live coverage of the Communities in Schools Town Hall session, "Powering the National Graduation Rate and Fueling our Nation's Economy" on January 21, 2016.
The goal of reaching a 90% national graduation rate is achievable—but only if there is clear understanding and action about: 1) the risks of leaving behind low-income students who are most risk of dropping out and 2) the benefits, which include the significant impact of a high school diploma on our nation’s economy. Thought leaders engaged in raising national awareness of this issue will talk about what can be done to amplify this message.
