Stay-in-school/Phone In: Terry Punch

Picking a New Path: Reporter Shaina Luck takes us to a neighbourhood where almost half the students don't finish high school. The reasons may be multi-layered, but the fact remains that unless kids stay in school, get an education, and see a future for themselves, we all lose. Pathways to Education takes a gutsy, personal and very practical approach to helping students who could be at risk of dropping out of high school. The first Pathways program in the Maritimes started up this September in the Halifax neighbourhood of Spryfield.
