Host Frank Stasio talks with Dave DeWitt, WUNC’s Raleigh Bureau Chief and Education reporter, about his latest series on the profession.

The first in the new series can be heard on Morning Edition tomorrow. These reports are part of American Graduate, Let's make it happen, a public media initiative to address the drop- out crisis, supported by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
