AMERICAN GRADUATE DAY
American Graduate Day: CPB President & CEO Pat Harrison, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan
American Graduate Day 2014 showcased communities, educators and champions from across the nation who are committed to tackling the nation’s dropout crisis and helping more students achieve a high school diploma. On September 27, local public media stations across the showcase showcased seven hours worth of coverage addressing a number of topics such as early education, mentoring, career readiness and college preparation, after school programs and dropout re-engagement.
Throughout that day, viewers and online users could ask questions, share ideas and engage in a healthy live exchange through social media using #AmGrad, which can be seen on the right-hand side. In addition, viewers can recognize someone who is an American Graduate Champion in their life or the lives of others in the community.
