    Turn Around is Possible

    Four years ago, Fenger High School was in the news for low test scores, high dropout rates and notorious violence. Enter Principal Elizabeth Dozier. Thanks to her leadership and a government grant, Fenger's dropout rate is now down by 50 percent and graduation rates are up by 30 percent, among other impressive statistics. In this powerful and passionate talk, Liz shares her experience in turning around a high school—and the lives of students in attendance there—after almost everyone had written off the school and its students.
