American Graduate: 2012 Retrospective

Throughout the past year, as part of our ongoing American Graduate: Let's Make It Happen initiative,  we've spoken with educators, administrators and innovators who are manning the front lines of the fight to see every student make it to graduation day.  Today we bring you a selection of those 2012 conversations, featuring discussions about the importance of ongoing science and math education, the role of "graduation coaches" in local schools and an examination of the factors most responsible for rising dropout rates.
