Almost 40 percent of all Latino students who start ninth grade will not graduate with their peers four years later (source: Education Trust). With the intentions to turn around these troublesome graduation statistics, Ford Motor Company Fund and LULAC National responded by establishing the Ford Driving Dreams Through Education; a program aimed to reduce the disparity in the high school dropout rate among Latino youth. For the past two years, Ford Motor Company Fund and LULAC National have supported LULAC Councils and the communities they serve to design and implement localized solutions that address a critical need. What makes this program unique is that it gives LULAC Councils the flexibility to design programs/curriculum that take into account their respective education issues, resources, and support systems in their communities. LULAC Councils create top notch programs that help stimulate academic achievement and high school completion all around the United States.
