There've been a LOT of education stories on our show lately: students getting paid to study, parents getting paid to get involved in students' education, and Wednesday's coverage of a California high school with an incredibly high dropout rate. The first two of these stories are controversial; the last is downright disturbing.
You've heard people tell you before why dropping out is a bad idea, so you don't need to hear it from me. But we'd like to know what you think could be done to stop teenagers from giving up on school. What would you tell people who want to drop out? What would you do to encourage them to keep showing up to class?
