Join East Tennessee PBS for a community forum with PlanET on the importance of an educated workforce. This forum is a part of the community engagement work East Tennessee PBS is doing with American Graduate, a nationwide initiative to address the dropout crisis. Work from our American Graduate Digital Storytelling Workshop, with students from Tribe One and the Knoxville Area Urban League, will premiere before this important discussion.
American Graduate: Let’s Make it Happen is a multi-year public media initiative, supported by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), to help local communities identify and implement solutions to the high school dropout crisis. Public broadcasting has a long history improving educational outcomes for high-need students and communities. The dropout crisis demands attention now, and we are rising to the challenge of doing our part to address this problem.
