We know there are many reasons why pursuing your education might seem impossible, but we have also heard so many stories about why it’s worth it, that you can do it, and that there are resources out there to help you along the way. Teresa Lugo, a high school community bilingual navigator from Austin, MN,  joins the podcast to talk about some of the disparities in high school graduation rates and why high schoolers might opt out of continuing on with education. She also highlights the importance of supporting students who are making difficult choices between education and working when it can be so difficult to see the long term benefits. Life After Now is brought to you by the Minnesota Office of Higher Education.
