This episode combines radio drama and documentary to explore America's dropout epidemic through the intimate story of one man's attempt to make a difference in the lives of a group of high-risk kids. Based on the off-broadway show by SOTRU host Al Letson, this episode chronicles Letson's journey teaching at the summer camp of a community center in an economically challenged neighborhood. Told through monologue, poetry, and sound-rich reporting, this episode challenges perceptions about race, class and education, to reveal unseen challenges facing students in communities across the country.
