I thought we were all Americans here.
From the letter"Since the program began at Payson High School,
the graduation rate among Latinos has been 100 percent, and 85 percent of them
enroll in college."Is the graduation rate of 100 percent for ALL
Latinos in Payson High School or for those in this program?The
Latino population of Payson HS is way above 21 students.
The Latinos in Action program works miracles. LIA has taken the demographic
group with the lowest graduation and made a huge difference. I believe the 100%
graduation rate is for the students in the LIA program. Statewide, the impact of
LIA is tremendous. And in addition the mentoring of elementary students and the
scholarship opportunities for high schoolers are really having a positive
effect. Way to do some good in the world!
