Education Series Pt 2. How Do We Fix Dropout Rates

The Clark County School District continues to linger at the bottom nationally when it comes to graduation and dropouts rates.  Why?  And how can we turn it around?  We'll look at a national effort to raise graduation rates.  We'll also look at schools that have turned around failing schools and drop-out factories into successful models.
