Dropping Out is a Drag

10/27 at 11am: Statistics show that Native American students drop out of school at twice the rate of their non-Native peers. Whether they live on the reservation or off, Native American students are choosing to leave school because their needs are not being met by the schools they attend or because of difficulties in their personal lives at home. 

How can we keep our youth engaged in pursuing an education so they can become productive members of society? Is there a method we have not tried to keep our kids in school?

Guests include Star Oosahwe-Yellowfish (Cherokee) Administrator/Oklahoma City Public Schools.
