The American Graduate Initiative
WGTE in conjunction with Toledo Public Schools and the United Way of Greater Toledo are providing leadership to a network of community partners to build awareness of the dropout crisis in our area. American Graduate is a public media initiative funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting to help local communities across America find solutions to address the dropout crisis. The initiative builds on public media's long-standing commitment to education by convening conversations and strengthening partnerships between public radio and television stations and local schools, businesses and community organizations to help students stay on the path to a high school diploma.
