04/15 - Back on Track: Louisiana Graduates

What help is available for Louisiana students who have dropped out of school?

In 2013, Louisiana’s graduation rate reached an all-time high of nearly 74%. Despite significant improvements, in some cases graduation still is not the norm even among middle- and high-income students in the state. We will bring together former dropouts and current students who have returned to finish their education through programs like “Jump Start” and “Jobs for America’s Graduates.”

We want to know your opinion! Leave your comments in the box below.
