Sept. 25 ‘Frontline’ Episode to Highlight HISD’s Dropout Prevention Efforts

HISD’s efforts to get dropouts back in class—and keep at-risk students from leaving school in the first place—will be the focus of an upcoming special report by the award-winning Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) television show, Frontline.

The “Dropout Nation” episode documents the challenges and obstacles four students face in their quest to earn a diploma from HISD’s Sharpstown High School.

The show is set to air on cable and the PBS website on Tues., Sept. 25, at 8 p.m. You can watch a trailer here and check local listings for showtimes here.
