Dropping Back In: More Than a Statistic
About This Episode
The longer someone is out of school the less likely they are to go back. More Than a Statistic looks at programs designed to get young dropouts back on course. Featured are Pedro Albizu Campos High School in Chicago, where a community-based curriculum incorporates Puerto Rican culture; YouthBuild, a national program combining academics with mentoring and construction career training; and ChalleNG Academy, a National Guard program for dropouts and potential dropouts.
Dropping Back In is a KET series of four half-hour programs that tell the inspiring stories of dropouts who are dropping back in and the people and programs helping them on the path to college and career success.
