|The Last Dropout: Stop the Epidemic!
|With almost one third of all high school students failing to graduate with their class, we are facing a dropout crisis. Students who drop out of high school are more likely than students who graduate to be unemployed, live in poverty, have poor health, depend on social services, or go to jail. What can schools do to help? This resource describes nine key principles proven effective by Communities In Schools, a community-based organization that helps kids succeed in school and prepare for life. The Last Dropout discusses the creation of Communities In Schools and provides stories about how the principles have been adopted into communities. Learn how a commitment to these principles can help turn around communities and make a lasting and meaningful effect on the dropout problem we are facing today.
