Detroit schools to get dropout help

from Michigan Radio

Two schools in Detroit will take part in a federally funded project aimed at improving kids' chances at graduating from high school. Penny Bailer is with City Year Detroit, whose volunteers will serve as tutors and mentors at Emerson and Bow elementaries in Detroit. Bailer says the program targets kids who have problems with attendance, behavior and academics, "and when a child is off track in any one of those, across the country the research says they will not graduate from high school." Along with the City Year volunteers, the program will provide researchers from Johns Hopkins University who will assist principals and teachers on the academic front. Social workers from the group Communities in Schools will provide counseling to students who need it. more
