Dropout Nation is the leading online outlet covering and commenting on American public education and school reform. Reaching more than 20,000 unique readers every month, Dropout Nation focuses its daily coverage on the policy and practice issues that contribute to the crisis of low educational achievement that leads to children dropping out. Originating out of the commentary and coverage of education began in 2005 by RiShawn Biddle with Left Behind, a series of editorials in The Indianapolis Star, Dropout Nation and its team of contributing writers sheds light on these issues through the objective and honest use of data. The goal is to help families and others transform American public education so that all children, no matter who they are or where they live, attain the high-quality education they need and deserve to write their own stories.
