Building a Grad NationGains in Canton City Schools Over the last Decade are Real, says Building a Grad Nation

Compiled by several national organizations and sponsored by AT&T, Building a Grad Nation[1] is a major yearly report chronicling the nation's progress and challenge in ending the high school dropout epidemic.
Featured among the nation's successes this year is a case study on the Canton City Schools. Building a Grad Nation has this to say about Canton.

"...the gains Canton has made over the past decade are real...Canton's schools are the story of a small mid-western district that recognized its weaknesses, re-organized around existing strengths and new ideas, and built on a community's commitment to its students."

The case study examines advances at McKinley and Timken High Schools, including the development of Early College High School, Career Technical Education and the district's alternative education programs. When it comes to the future, the report notes, "Canton has made important progress and has already shown the innovation and initiative that suggest it can continue to chart a course toward more improvement."

Building a Grad Nation is a report by Civic Enterprises, the Everyone Graduates Center at Johns Hopkins University, America's Promise Alliance and the Alliance for Excellent Education.
