Michigan gives high school dropouts a second chance

Think about how our culture has been eliminating second chances for people who screw-up in some way shape or form.  In Michigan, the prisons are just about full and if you drop-out of high school, there's no GED program to get a diploma.

Jeff Gerritt writes in the Detroit Free Press about the Michigan Challenge Academy in Battle Creek where dropouts needing discipline and structure in their lives are given the opportunity of a lifetime.  Sounds like a program that should be affirmed and duplicated. 

Does this really work?  Any thoughts?
