Where can they go?

Posted By on August 19, 2010

It has occurred to me that when a student drops out of any of the 36 high schools in Wyoming that do not have an alternative school in their district, their ONLY option to get their diploma is to return to the very same environment in which they failed. Most adults would have a difficult time doing this. And most adults in the system have a difficult time believing that a student has “changed” enough to give them a second chance. So, in the discussion about dropout prevention, alternative pathways for students to take other than returning to their home high school need to be discussed.
