I’m considering a project for my students to create inspirational posters to be displayed possibly at the high school, middle school and maybe a few public areas in the county. I thought this would be a good way to bring the student’s and the public’s attention to such huge problem in our community. I know it is not much and I wish that I could do more to combat our high dropout rate, but I thought this would be a start. I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on this? Good idea, bad idea. Would it be too much information for 4th or 5th grade students to understand that, with current stats in our county,close to 100 students from their class may not make it to high school graduation?
