Nat’l League of Cities Blog Post: “Education Re-engagement Centers Spreading”

Posted by

Check out our colleague Andrew Moore’s blog post on the National League of Cities Blog: Education Re-engagement Centers Spreading. Andrew’s post focuses on thirteen new re-engagement centers that opened this past week in Los Angeles, CA. These new centers are a collaboration between the City of Los Angeles, the Los Angeles Unified School District, and community-based organizations. Read the whole post on CitiesSpeak.org.

An increase in re-engagement centers around the country is great news for students, families, and their communities. Helping high school dropouts get back on the path to a high school diploma is important for building a successful community; high school graduates are more likely to find jobs, earn more over their lifetimes, and become contributing citizens in their community.
