Almost 30 percent of adults living on or below the federal poverty line don't have a high school diploma. To help turn that around, we pair real-life success stories with information about free local adult education classes. Each story shows that no one pursues their dreams of education without a support system.
We chose to celebrate real people without scripting or embellishment so that those who are thinking about earning their high school diploma may see their realities reflected back to them. They'll also see that motivation can come from a partner who helps with studying, a teacher at an education center or even their kids.
