Oyler School - Steps for Success

As part of WVXU’s continuing American Graduate project, working to find answers to the drop out epidemic in America’s high schools, Mark Perzel talks with Jennifer Bellin who, in a volunteer effort, directs the Oyler School’s Steps for Success program that focuses on providing mentors, unique experiences and skills to aid economically disadvantaged high school seniors into making a successful transition into postsecondary school. Oyler School’s effort to retain students in their economically depressed neighborhood was recently featured on public radio’s Marketplace.
