More than One Third of LAUSD Students Don't Graduate

I'm scheduled tonight at a little after 7:00 pm (PDT) on the Al Rantel Show on KABC Los Angeles.

Likely topic: LAUSD's astronomical drop out rate and some alternatives that might help.

More than one-third of Los Angeles Unified high school students drop out, according to a new study released Wednesday.....

The district's four-year dropout rate of 33.6 percent was well above the statewide average of 24.2 percent, sparking renewed calls to beef up academic standards in the nation's second-largest school district.

LA and Metro So Cal, it's 790 on the AM dial or listen live here.
