Launched as part of a new national movement to curtail the number of high school dropouts, this site offers resources to support a 10-point plan to “provide students with a more challenging, relevant high school education and extra support to graduate.” One resource, an online mapping tool developed by Education Week, allows users to find out the graduation rate of every school district in the nation, as well as the grade level at which each district tends to lose students. The initiative and the site are sponsored by Civic Enterprises, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the National Governors Association, MTV and Time magazine.
