Summary A troubling and inspiring journey through the maze of an inner city high school, Dropout Nation investigates the causes, challenges, and potential solutions of a national emergency.
Every year, hundreds of thousands of teenagers in the United States quit high school without diplomas - an epidemic so out of control that nobody knows the exact number. FRONTLINE takes you inside a former "dropout factory" in Houston, Texas, for an unforgettable portrait of four students in crisis and the teachers, counselors and principal waging a daily struggle to get them to graduation.
