Every 26 seconds, another student gives up on school. This equals about 7,000 students every school day, resulting in 1.3 million students dropping out of high school every year.
During a segment of WOSU’s on All Sides with Ann Fisher, a group of leaders discuss two established programs devoted to changing the course for central Ohio drop outs and students at risk for dropping out.
- Nancy Nestor-Baker (OSU Administrator on Loan, United Way of Central Ohio)
- Maureen Cassamasimo (Center Supervisor, AT&T Success Center at Linden McKinley High School)
- Jennifer Voit (Vice President of Programs, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Ohio)
