Project Second Chance
High school dropouts and projects to help them
Produced, directed and written by Robert Richter
One out of four US teenagers drop out of high school before they graduate, a staggering statistic.
This documentary tells the human story behind the numbers.
See and learn about inspirational projects where dropouts get their GEDs, some with the help of their employers, some with community agencies, some with their own independent drive. Many are pregnant teenagers.
All looking for a better future and recognizing the value of their education as a key part.
A moving, inpirational and uplifting documentary, originally produced for Arkansas public tv when Bill Clinton was that state's Governor, and telecast nationally by PBS.
