"All children deserve a high-quality education that provides them the opportunity to learn and succeed in a safe and caring environment. For more than 15 years, the National Dropout Prevention Center has worked to support and enhance the continuous improvement of public education systems. Our approaches are research-based and grounded in our conviction that schools must plan creatively and systematically to achieve the goal of high-quality education for every child."
