Iowa Dropout Prevention Summit
As part of the Forum's commitment to support Quality Counts sites, the Forum, along with Iowa Collaboration for Youth Development, co-sponsored Governor Culver's dropout prevention summit aimed at creating urgency and developing action plans to respond to the dropout crisis of minority youth in 15 Iowa communities. Karen Pittman traveled to Des Moines on May 7
to facilitate a panel of young people talking about the supports they need to graduate high school as well as the challenges they face. Karen also presented data on why high school graduation is a key step to getting kids ready for college, work and life. View the PowerPoint from Karen's presentation.
