Trying to Lower the Dropout Rate?

So our public schools are a mess, and there are now SUMMITS and COMMITTEES and TASK FORCES whos main goal is to lower the dropout rate.

They will FAIL.

As long as they concentrate on LOWERING the dropout rate instead of RAISING the graduation rate, they will fail. Maybe it's time to see why kids leave, and give them reasons to STAY. I think making the lessons RELEVANT, and making the PROCESS relevant and exciting is where it's at.

Lately I've been writing about THE SECRET, and taking responsibility for everything in my life:

Did I attract a high dropout rate in my life?
Is this reality just something that I have attracted?

If so, maybe I need to concentrate and think about RAISING the graduation rate.
Maybe it'll work- try it with me?
