City Voices March 2008: Curbing dropouts

Print More

To curb the dropout rate, CPS is putting “freshman on track” labs in a number of high schools. The goal is to keep 9th-graders on track to graduate, since research shows that freshmen who earn too few credits and stray from the path toward getting a diploma are more likely to quit school. What will the labs look like? Guests: Paige Ponder of the CPS Office of Dropout Prevention and Gerald Morrow, principal of Robeson High.
