The report looks at how three “leader” states, Indiana, Massachusetts and North Carolina, are accessing public funds for various non-traditional secondary education programs to address high school dropout prevention and how to get disconnected youths back in school. Among other things, the report recommends increasing the menu of educational options for struggling high school students and out-of-school youths to complete their secondary education, and more collaboration between school districts and other agencies whose aim is to reengage disconnected youths in school.
