Student dropouts are a problem for schools from coast to coast. Friday, education leaders from across Indiana are combining forces in a first-of-its-kind meeting to come up with ways to stop the trend.
The Indiana Dropout Prevention Summit will be at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis.
Officials invited a representative from every county to attend.
The keynote speaker is Bill Milliken, founder and vice chairman of "Communities in Schools,” a national organization that aims to keep kids in the classroom.
There will also be talks by Indiana's Superintendent of Schools, Tony Bennett. To learn more about the summit, click on the big red bar.
