High School in Jail
Air Date: 3/1/2005
More than 20 thousand students in North Carolina dropped out of school last year. That’s according to State Educators who are encouraging schools to work harder to keep students in the classroom. But once teenagers are outside a traditional high school setting getting a diploma can be very difficult. That’s especially true for teenagers who are in jail or prison. That’s in part why Wake County officials founded John Baker High School. It’s a charter school that operates inside the Wake County Jail. WUNC’s Jessica Jones reports.

The schools suspended bus service at about 11 last night – and the students who were left behind – had to spend the night in classrooms. City officials say it’s unclear exactly why so little snow caused so many problems. WUNC’s Morning Edition anchor Eric Hodge spoke with Mayor Charles Meeker on Thursday morning. Meeker says Wednesday was a very frustrating day for drivers – and for the police and road crews who were trying to help people get home.
