Free Dropout Webinar 12/10/2010

Franklin Schargel will be among the voices at a Friday, Dec. 10 webinar entitled “Dropout Recovery Solutions — What Will it Take to Re-Engage Out of School Youth?”

Schargel, whose career spans 33 years of classroom teaching, school counseling, school supervision and administration, will speak about the unintended consequences of federal and state accountability measures — which may be a major disincentive to bringing students back into schools. He also spoke on the dropout crisis, and its solutions, at the National Dropout Prevention Conference earlier this month in Philadelphia.

The webinar is being sponsored by the Reaching At-Promise Students Association and will also inclide Ryan Reyna, co-author of Achieving Graduation for All: A Governor’s Guide to Dropout Prevention; and Mark White, associate superintendent for the Houston Independent School District.
