AEE Webinar: The Economic Benefits of Reducing the Dropout Rate among Students of Color in the Nation’s Largest Metropolitan Areas

Posted by Youth Services - On July 27, 2010 (EST)

Earlier this year, the Alliance for Excellent Education documented the benefits of reducing the dropout rate for all students in the nation’s largest metropolitan areas. Building on this work, it is now able to estimate the economic benefits of reducing the dropout rate among students of color in these metro areas. On July 7, the Alliance for Excellent Education and the Campaign for High School Equity hosted a live webinar to release these new findings and to discuss the challenges of improving high school graduation rates among students of color and what doing so could mean for local communities, as well as the students themselves. Following the discussion, panelists answered questions from online participants.
