“All children deserve a high-quality education that provides them the opportunity to learn and succeed in a safe and caring environment. . . . The National Dropout Prevention Center has worked to support and enhance the continuous improvement of public education systems. Our approaches are research-based and grounded in our conviction that schools must plan creatively and systematically to achieve the goal of high-quality education for every child.”
