American Graduate: A Teacher Town Hall on Dropouts

How can you tell if a 10-year-old won't graduate from high school? If he's reading two years behind grade level or is chronically absent, his odds for completing high school aren't good. On Tuesday, teachers from across the Washington region gathered to share stories, offer support and identify suggestions about how to best change the course of a student's life by ensuring they stay in school. Join us for "American Graduate - Let's Make it Happen," a special town hall event, co-produced by WAMU, WETA and WHUT.
