Public broadcasting has a long history of improving educational outcomes for high-need students and communities. The dropout crisis demands attention now, and WVXU, in partnership with CET, is rising to the challenge of doing our part to address this problem.Together, WVXU and CET are working with national and community-based partners to raise awareness by creating local content on all facets of the problem. We’ll look at the issues that underlie the drop-out crisis, and at ideas that are working in our community. And we’ll help concerned citizens learn what they can do to help. You can follow our reports on Cincinnati Edition and Impact Cincinnati.As part of the project, CET and Nine on Your Side will present Cradle to Career: Moving the Needle in Education on Thursday, February 28th at 8:00 pm. The program will be simulcast on CET and Digital 9.2. With one out of four students failing to complete high school, the program explores the impact of the drop-out crisis on our region, as well as an innovative community approach to helping students stay on the path to graduation.

According to a study conducted last year, children who don’t read well by third grade are four times more likely to leave high school without a diploma than children who are proficient readers by third grade.

Join us for Impact Cincinnati, Thursday, August 16 at 9:20 am, as we discuss early education’s effect on a child’s ability to successfully complete high school. This is another program in our American Graduate Project series.
