American Graduate

Teacher Town Hall

The Corporation for Public Broadcasting’s American Graduate initiative seeks to help communities find and carry out solutions to the nation’s high school dropout crisis. As part of this initiative, 11 town hall events were held across the country. In each location, over 100 teachers met to discuss and overcome the challenges in their classrooms.

MacNeil/Lehrer Productions provided support to each local station involved in producing the town hall events for television. In addition, NewsHour correspondents including Ray Suarez and Gwen Ifill moderated several of the discussions.
