Dropping Back features inspiring stories of former dropouts telling their personal stories, profiles of institutions and organizations that are forging innovative solutions, and leading experts discussing. High school dropouts, educators, and researchers introduce the economic and personal costs of dropping out, why a high school equivalency is no longer enough, and the benefits of dropouts gaining second chances. Two former dropouts, Kellie Blair Hardt, homeless as a child, now an award-winning teacher, and Hasan Davis, former commissioner of juvenile justice for the state of Kentucky, tell their stories.
