Dropout Prevention and Recovery

How do we keep teens engaged in the education system and help them bridge the gap to college? It is a growing problem but we are not without possible solutions. Dr. Steffi Cappel, Executive Director of the University of Cincinnati PASS, talks with retired educator Dr. John Bryant and Dr. Larry Johnson, Dean and Professor of the University of Cincinnati College of Education, Criminal Justice and Human Services, about the dropout problem in Greater Cincinnati and the support services available in our community. They also discuss issues related to the upcoming Dropout Summit on June 25 at Cincinnati State Technical and Community College, co-sponsored by Strive, the America's Promise Alliance, Cincinnati State and more than 15 other community organizations. Guests also share the things that individuals can do to help support the young people in their lives who are at risk of dropping out of school.
