Coalition Produces Local Video on School Dropout

The Partnership for Youth’s Mass Grad Coalition commissioned a report to better understand why local young people drop out of school, and worked with local filmmaker Ali Pinschmidt to create a video-mediated dialogue between youth who had dropped out of school and school teachers, counselors and administrators. Ali produced a 35 minute film with excerpts from the dialogue as a tool to facilitate discussion about students dropping out of school in a rural community. A trailer is available hereTo see the full video, click HERE and enter the password “Help2StayInSchool”.
