In the U.S., we have this chronic problem of looking past the people who are affected the most by our country's greatest struggles, including the millions of young people we're losing to the high school dropout crisis. Here's an amazing project — and contest! — that's working to change that.
There's a conversation happening about your future.
And you're not in it.
I'm the voice you won't hear, in the school board meeting.
Voice you won't hear on the news.
I'm the voice you won't hear in the national conversation about the high school dropout rate.
No one will hire me.
I'm struggling to pay the rent.
I'm too far behind.
Nearly a million young Americans . . .
Drop out of high school, every year.
What do you have to say?
What would it take to remix . . .
To remix . . .
Remix the conversation. Raise your voice.
Raise your hand.
Raise the rate.
