Back to School: Exploring Promising Practices for Re-Engaging Young People in Secondary Education
America's Promise Alliance's Center for Promise has released Back to School: Exploring Promising Practices for Re-Engaging Young People in Secondary Education, a paper that follows the center's previous Don't Call Them Dropouts report. The paper is based on listening to young people who did not graduate from high school in four years, and explores ways to strengthen and expand re-engagement options for young people who need more time or different pathways to finish school. It is a resource for educators, practitioners, community stakeholders, communications professionals, and policymakers interested in supporting out-of-school youth who wish to obtain a high school credential.
