Communities in School Town Hall
Nine Network of Public Media is proud to be the executive producer of American Graduate and participate in the Communities in Schools Town Hall.
Watch the event live in the below video player January 21 at 1:35 p.m. CST for “Powering the National Graduation Rate and Fueling our Nation’s Economy.”
The goal of reaching a 90% national graduation rate is achievable—but only if there is clear understanding and action about: 1) the risks of leaving behind low-income students who are most risk of dropping out and 2) the benefits, which include the significant impact of a high school diploma on our nation’s economy. Thought leaders engaged in raising national awareness of this issue will talk about what can be done to amplify this message.
