Summer 2004 Breakfast Series: Graduation Rates


This summer, America Graduates and the Alliance for Excellent Education cohosted a summer breakfast series, at which leaders in the field of education gathered to discuss issues related to successful high school transformation and increasing graduation rates. Experts presented recent research findings and demonstrated effective transformations through profiles of emerging models.

The first session in the breakfast series featured the premier researchers in the United States currently examining high school graduation rates.

Nettie Legters and Robert Balfanz from John Hopkins University discussed the findings of their latest report, Locating the Dropout Crisis: Which High Schools Produce the Majority of the Nation’s Dropouts, Where are they Located, and Who Attends Them?

Daniel Losen from Harvard University’s Civil Rights Project, presented the findings of Losing Our Future: How Minority Youth Are Being Left Behind by the Graduation Rate Crisiswhich was jointly released by the Civil Rights Project, Urban Institute, Advocates for Children of New York, and the Civil Society Institute earlier in 2004.
