Dropping Back In: Second Chances

About This Episode


High school dropouts, educators, and researchers introduce the economic and personal costs of dropping out, why a high school equivalency is no longer enough, and the benefits of dropouts gaining second chances. Two former dropouts, Kellie Blair Hardt, homeless as a child, now an award-winning teacher, and Hasan Davis, former commissioner of juvenile justice for the state of Kentucky, tell their stories.

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.
