Tracking Down Kids Who Skip School
Tracking Down Kids Who Skip School

Listen
AIR DATE: September 30, 2011

When school started this month, the CCSD deputy superintendent wasn't sitting in his office.  He was knocking door-to-door, tracking down students who didn't show up to school.  The volunteer program "Reclaim Your Future" is part of the school district's latest effort to revamp the system.  So how successful is it?  Were those students even home?  And did they come back to class?  Pedro Martinez and volunteers share stories of tracking down the kids who skip school.

GUEST
Pedro Martinez, Superintendent, CCSD
