American Graduate: Education
KERA's ongoing American Graduate initiative charts the journey from childhood to graduation. Also, dig into our special American Graduate series:
- Generation One: In Texas one in three children has a parent who's an immigrant -- or their immigrants themselves. They have to learn a new language, adapt to a different culture and try to fit into a community that may not embrace newcomers. Follow these first-generation Texans and the educators weaving them into the American tapestry.
- Homeless In High School:For many teens, graduating from high school is tough enough. Try doing all that reading, homework and studying when you don't have a place to live. Meet some the 110,000 homeless students who attend Texas public schools -- and the people helping them out.
- What's Next For The Class Of '17?: KERA has been following a group of kids from across North Texas since eighth grade. Now they're juniors -- and the decisions they're making will shape their futures.
