Last Updated by Jennifer Fowler on

American Graduate will partner with multiple education-driven organizations for a Twitter Chat on how to raise the graduation rate in states and communities across the country.

America’s Promise Alliance, an American Graduate partner, alongside AT&T Aspire, Better Make Room, Pearson and Communities in Schools will host #PromiseChat June 8 at 3 p.m. EDT.

The conversation looks to promote and provide a forum around the 2016 Building a Grad Nation report, which focuses on current graduate rates across the country, progress in struggling states, as well as the challenges faced in obtaining a 90% graduation rate.
