On the Front Lines of Schools: Perspectives of Teachers and Principals on the High School Dropout Problem.
By: John M. Bridgeland, John J. DiIulio, Jr. and Robert Balfanz
In a follow-up to The Silent Epidemic: Perspectives of High School Dropouts (http://www.servicelearning.org/library/lib_cat/index.php?library_id=7242), a report on the dropout crisis in American public education, Civic Enterprises has created a new report that includes the views of teachers and administrators, perspectives missing from its first report. This report has documented a mix of hopeful views and challenging statistics concerning how, and how well, those on the front lines of America's schools -- teachers and principals -- understand the nation's high school dropout crisis, including the ability for service-learning to be part of that solution.
