Teachers Discuss High School Drop Out Rates in Florida

Apr 29, 2012

An initiative called American Graduate: Let's Make It Happen, which is funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, brought together public school teachers from across the state, including Tampa, to Jacksonville this weekend.

The teachers discussed the 1.3 million kids that drop out of high school every year in  America.

Last year, more than 83 thousand high school students didn't graduate in Florida, according to the Alliance for Excellent Education.

 Tallahassee teacher Cynthia McBride found it interesting that schools seem to share the same problems.
