Lessons in Learning from Detroit
PBS NewsHour's Hari Sreenivasan reports on lessons in education that can be learned form the experience of public schools in struggling Detroit.
Hari's Reporter's Notebook analysis looks at how that city's efforts are beginning a turnaround in the dropout crisis and in underperforming schools. PBS NewsHour has done extensive reporting on this topic as part of its American Graduate series.
Coming up on December 15th, WXXI News will present the Dropout Dilemma - a television special focusing on the impact of dropouts and low graduation rates in the Rochester City School District.
