Sammie Bryant's curator insight, May 27, 2015 12:15 AM

this article talks about one of the most important contemporary urban issues: public schools. in america, our dropout rate is rising, an appalling fact to face and admit. this means less and less students are receiving secondary education and obtaining the skills necessary to effectively contribute to society as well as the nation's economy. if we want to continue being a world power and keep progressing as some of our competitors, we must do everything we can to stop this dilemma and do everything in our power to make education  more accessible and  give every boy and girl a chance at bettering their own life and the world around them. this applies to our last unit of APHUG: Cities and Urban Land Use.
