Innovation Trail held a lively discussion about the dropout crisis in upstate New York, as part of the American Graduate initiative. Teachers, graduate students, and educational professionals were in attendance at the WXXI studios in Rochester to watch the FRONTLINE report, Middle School Moment, and gave their thoughts on how to curb the dropout crisis. Below is the FRONTLINE Middle School Moment report, and the discussion that followed:
