Dropping Back In is a series of half-hour documentary-style programs that outline the huge personal and societal costs of dropping out. Each program is designed to stand alone, although together they provide a more comprehensive picture of the dropout issue, with some experts and learners showing up in more than one program. Each program features expanded profiles of two individuals or programs, with comments from experts, educators, and other former dropouts providing context and further insight.
