A Call To Action

Did you know…?
One in five public school children drop out before they finish high school. That’s 1.3 million students a year. One every 26 seconds. 7,000 every school day. For African-American and Hispanic students, the chances of graduating are 50-50. If children are not performing at grade level by third grade, they are at a significantly higher risk of not completing high school[1].
