Podcast: Educational Options for At-Risk Students
ACE Learning Centers is a private company that contracts with districts in the Kansas City and Saint Louis area to serve at-risk students. The program operates with low costs, but produces results that often exceed those of the districts within which they operate. This podcast features a March 2 interview with Chris LeGrand, who works at the ACE center in Riverview Gardens, a district just north of Saint Louis City. Although we did not have exact figures on hand during the interview about how ACE compares to its surrounding public school district in terms of graduation rates, you can view the statistics for both Riverview Gardens and the ACE center, and see that ACE compares favorably.
