Study finds high number of BISD graduates drop out of college
The next step for many high school graduates is college, but how many come home with a diploma?
To find out, some taxpayers in the Beaumont Independent School District asked a researcher to study BISD.
George Scott is a public policy consultant. He talked about some of his findings during a news conference today at the Jefferson County Courthouse.
Scott says his findings show that a large number of BISD graduates who go to college end up dropping out.
If you would like to hear his findings and voice any questions, the presentation on the study will be held in the Jefferson County Courthouse on Tuesday, September 17 at 7 p.m. in the Jury Impaneling room. It is open to the public.
