Arkansas

AETN, Arkansas Criminal Justice Institute, and the Arkansas Department of Education partnered with key education professionals, business leaders and community leaders for an interactive workshop Staying Power, designed to increase dialogue about the need for more dropout prevention efforts in the state, explore the issues surrounding high school retention rates, discuss what is happening in Arkansas's schools and determine what action is needed to work toward reducing Arkansas's high school dropout rates. Topics discussed included challenges, opportunities, statistics, needs, available resources, Arkansas dropout programs and what business/community involvement means for these issues.
