Stop the Drop is an initiative created by GPB that’s dedicated to preventing high school dropouts. Currently, Georgia’s graduation rate is less than 70 percent, well below the national average. Stop the Drop works with organizations across the state, as well as schools, educators and communities to help bring students the resources and encouragement they need to be successful throughout their high school careers. GPB’s initiative aims to decrease the dropout rate by raising awareness and supporting students throughout the state of Georgia.
