In 2013, Louisiana’s graduation rate reached an all-time high of nearly 74%. Despite these significant improvements, in some cases graduation still is not the norm even among middle- and high-income students in the state. In April, Louisiana Public Square
brings together former dropouts and current students who have returned to finish their education through programs like “Jump Start” and “Jobs for America’s Graduates.” Hear their stories of success on a special town hall presentation, Back on Track: Louisiana Graduates on Wednesday, April 22 at 7PM on LPB HD.
Funding for this project is provided by the American Graduate Program and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. For more information on Louisiana’s dropout problem, visit www.lpb.org/americangraduate
