Connecting Every Student to a Meaningful Future – Podcast Episode 85 | Classnotes Podcast 85
Classnotes Podcast (March 10, 2011) In education, as in everything else, problem solving requires first a clear definition of the problem itself. One Texas superintendent examined his district’s dropout data and found an unexpected trend. Daniel King, Ph.D., superintendent of the Pharr-San Juan-Alamo school district, describes steps he took to recover 12th grade dropouts and lead them to graduate not just with a diploma but also with college credit. He shares how his district has cut the number of dropouts by 85 percent and is well on its way to reaching its ambitious goal of having every student earning dual credit by the time they graduate. Dr. King is interviewed by Aurelio Montemayor, M.Ed., director of the IDRA Texas Parent Information and Resource Center.
