Failing schools or just failing students

Even the worst high schools in America have a graduation rate of 50%.  That means half of the parents and students have learned what to  do to succeed in high school.  Why don’t we figure out what they are doing?  What are they saying?

Also talk to the teachers to see if we can find a pattern.  A pattern that can be tested with focus groups, random sampling, and other metrics to find what works.
