American Graduate

About This Collection

According to the 2015 Annual Building A Grad Nation report, the U.S. high school graduation rate will reach the goal of 90% by the year 2020 yet disparities still exist. The report takes a detailed look at the improvements and declines for students of color, students of low-income, and students with disabilities. The productivity of big cities/big districts and big states are also analyzed.

From June 1st to 9th, WORLD Channel will showcase documentaries that bring to focus the continuing challenges facing students, parents, teachers and administrators outside of the 90%. Anchoring American Graduate on WORLD are If You Build It and Where God Likes To Be from docu-series America ReFramed, and series Central Standard and Dropping Back In as well as programs from Independent Lens and P.O.V..

Inspired by the American Graduate: Let's Make It Happen initiative and supported by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB).
