ALSDE, The Mattie C. Stewart Foundation, and the Lawler Foundation of Birmingham are partnering to bring even greater awareness to the importance of graduating from high school and taking a frank, honest, look at the reality of what happens to those who do not.
During “InsideOut: Stay in School Week,” March 2-6, 2015, the ALSDE is encouraging all middle and high schools throughout the state to dedicate time to watch the 26-minute, emotionally gripping documentary entitled “InsideOut.” The film, shot in two Alabama maximum security prisons, exposes the devastating and lasting effects of dropping out of school by those who live with the consequences every day – prison inmates.
The ALSDE acknowledges the serious social, economic, and educational consequences resulting from students dropping out of high school and resolves to meet the goal of a 90 percent graduation rate with steps outlined in PLAN 2020.
