Nebraska - American Graduate Communities
NET brought together coalition of Nebraska educational organizations to produce the television special The State of Education in Nebraska. This special informed viewers that promoting services for at-risk students can make for a better future for all Nebraskans. The broadcast presented information on the importance of quality early learning, out-of-school and after school programs in dropout prevention, and encouraged community members to volunteer as mentors, tutors or readers. The community's response to The State of Education in Nebraska was so positive that NET expanded it to include a series of 24 broadcast specials that focus on the role of school and community partnerships can have on improving student achievement, both in the classroom and through outside learning opportunities and programs.
