Web Site of the Week: Frontline: Dropout Nation
Frontline has certainly done programs on education before, but this arresting program may be one of their best. The two hour program offers a look at students in crisis and those “waging a daily struggle to get them to graduate.” On this site, visitors can watch the program in its entirety and also look over profiles of the young people featured in this documentary. In The Latest area, visitors can learn about live chats and special reports such as “By the Numbers: Dropping Out of High School” and “Who Isn’t Graduating from High School?” The site also includes a number of teacher guides that can be used in classrooms to explore some of the issues raised by this thoughtful presentation.
