Spotlight Webcast: Building a Grad Nation

December 30, 2010

In our final webcast of the year, John Bridgeland, CEO of Civic Enterprises and newly appointed member of President
Obama’s White House Council for Community Solutions, discusses the
recently-released report Building a Grad Nation: Progress and Challenge in Meeting the High School Dropout Epidemic. The report, released by Civic Enterprises; Everyone Graduates Center at
Johns Hopkins University; and America’s Promise Alliance presents a
plan to boost the high school graduation rate to 90 percent by 2020. The
plan builds on successful efforts in states and school districts that
have recently seen significant gains in graduation rates.
