Low-income students are at even greater risk of repeating grades and dropping out of school. In his short film "Written Off," produced for GRADUATE XXI, Mexican director Nicolas Pereda asks if going to school is a sound decision when money is tight.

In our blog you can dig deeper into the issues and discuss them with NGOs and others who are working to give every student a chance to earn a diploma.

IDEA
# 7
Yo tengo libertad de elegir

Hola me siento muy contenta de poder aportar un granito de arena para mejorar el rendimiento de los chicos y chicas que están en riesgo de abandono o de cualquier situación que los tenga molesto u ofendidos.

Mi idea para mejorar el sistema de enseñanza y que haya menos deserción en las secundarias es que Elige tu profesor, que el ministerio de educación te da la opción por via internet, y por medio de un tutor del mismo colegio se lo oriente para que el alumno elija al maestro de la materia que la tienen abandonada o les va mal, porque considero que la relación alumno-maestro debe ser muy positiva, pero cuando se torna insoportable o molesta se torna desanimada y con deseos de abandono, se da mucho en las escuelas que abandonan porque no toleran la presencia de cierto profesor o maestra por tal motivo o el motivo que sea, lo que desencadena el alejamiento e interés de la materia y por consiguiente el abandono de la secundaria.

Yo pienso que para aplicar tal medida el Director/a debe respaldar al alumno ante tal profesor problemático y acompañar para que la elección del profesor/a sea para cumplir el fin, que el alumno termine la secundaria.
