Mr. Segel,
I identify with your agony regarding our national dropout crisis. I've worked with youth in Dallas over 40 years. I am now certain this crisis is caused by a lack of awareness among our youth of their own history and no investment in plans for their own future. in 2005 we bolted a 350-pound gun vault to the floor in our middle school lobby and turned it into a time-capsule for letters our students write to themselves. It is a popular project planning for 10-year middle school reunions when the vault will be opened and letters returned. Students also know they will be asked to speak with then current students about their recommendations for success. The graduation rate at the main school receiving most of our students has gone from 34% (2000-2007 average) to 60% for the Class of 2010! See details at www.studentmotivation.org. This solution simply fits within the normal writing curricula of the school and takes almost no extra funds other than the vault, which was easy to get donated, and envelopes along with the funds for photos of 'Archiving Day' which are given to each student to remind them of their letter in the vault and the planned 10-year reunion. When we are serious about a real focus on the future, school changes.
