Students to make dropout pledge


McCaffrey Middle School students in Galt are scheduled today to participate in a youth-led high school dropout prevention pledge.

Every 26 seconds across America, a student drops out of high school, according to statistics provided by State Farm, which is sponsoring the event. The 26-second pledge drive will occur during lunch breaks.

Since March 2011, State Farm has worked with community leaders, education advocates, individual schools and school districts to motivate students to be more than a statistic through the 26 Seconds Campaign.
