KQED has launched American Graduate: Let’s Make It Happen — a local initiative to help combat the dropout crisis in Oakland. KQED and Oakland’s Promise Alliance will address the issue by working with local schools, businesses and community organizations to raise awareness of the crisis and its impact on our communities.
We will be hosting a series of community events, including a Teacher Town Hall seeking to elevate teacher voices and opinions on the topic of drop out. Young people throughout our country are dropping out of school in high numbers and teachers are on the front lines of this national and local crisis. Bring your expertise and share what works for engaging and supporting urban youth at the American Graduate Teacher Town Hall.
