Across the nation there are some 1700 high schools where less than 60% of incoming freshmen graduate. Fifteen of these so-called "dropout factories" are right here in Clark County. We try to find out why and hear what's being done to reverse those figures. Adam Burke reports on the latest efforts to keep students on track to graduate at Western High School.
According to the one recent survey 14,417 people are homeless in Southern Nevada. How do these Las Vegans fit into our discussion of community? Have they created a community of their own? Or are they the most alienated group of all? We'll discuss the challenges of overcoming homelessness with Las Vegans who have spent time living on the streets... and some underground.
