Making a Difference in Dropout Rates
LSWI3603 - September 28, 2012

A recent study says 7th and 8th grade can make the difference between a high school dropout and a high school graduate. Southern Education Desk reporter Sue Lincoln shows us three Louisiana public schools putting that information into action. We’ll also see how another southern state is facing the dropout crisis. Our Southern Education Desk partner in Nashville reports on how Tennessee is addressing this issue.
