American GraduateThe American Graduate: Let's Make It Happen
The Corporation for Public Broadcasting, in Partnership with America's Promise Alliance and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, has launched American Graduate: Let's Make It Happen - an initiative to help combat our country's drop-out crisis. Beginning April 2012, WEDU and WUSF, partners in the American Graduate initiative, will air informational spots focused on the high school drop-out crisis in our state and nation.

Before this programming begins, we hope to get a sense of how familiar area residents are with the issues of high school drop-outs by asking members of the community to complete a brief survey. You will not be required to share your name or contact information and your responses will be used strictly to measure public awareness Thank you for your time and assistance! Click here to take the survey.
