Building a Grad Nation Summit invigorates & equips attendees to move forward in dropout prevention efforts

April 1, 2011

The First Annual Building a Grad Nation Summit
convened in D.C. in March, bringing together nearly 900 education
stakeholders to discuss solutions to the challenging high school dropout crisis
in America. A primary theme of the summit was that of real progress
being made, but that significant challenges remain.  In addition to a notable lineup of speakers from the
Administration including Vice President Biden and Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, public and private sector and youth, several new research
reports
were released.

Plenary sessions were webcast live online and you can now see archived
video
online.
