Back on Track: Louisiana Graduates

Louisiana’s graduation rate has jumped nearly ten points over the last decade. But at 74.6%, the state’s high school graduation rate still lags behind the national average of 81%. And last year 19 school districts saw their graduation rates decline. How do students stay in school despite these odds? This month Louisiana Public Square brings together former dropouts and at-risk students who are back on a path to graduation thanks to the intervention of a caring adult and resources available in the state. Hear these students’ stories of success on a special town hall presentation, “Back on Track: Louisiana Graduates.”
