Torrez: Reduce Dropout Rate And Absenteeism By Making High School Relevant

Think New Mexico 

To understand why students drop out of high school, researchers funded by the Gates Foundation hit upon a novel idea several years ago: why not just ask the dropouts?

So, they did. Nearly half (47 percent) of the respondents reported dropping out because they were bored. Their top suggestion to help students stay: make school more engaging and enhance the connection between classroom and work. In other words, make the curriculum relevant.

Given that New Mexico’s graduation rate is more than 10 percent below the national average and that 40 percent of our students Read More

Fr. Glenn: Seeking Incandescence

By Fr. Glenn Jones:

ELIZABETH: For we’re trying to find a fault in you.

DARCY: Maybe it’s that I find it hard to forgive the follies and vices of others, or their offenses against myself. My good opinion, once lost, is lost forever.
