About the Book
Originally published in 2007, the revised edition of The Last Dropout by Communities In Schools® (CIS®) Founder Bill Milliken offers nine key principles that CIS has tested over four decades and chronicles stories from CIS leaders who have successfully adopted these principles in their own communities. It also includes a new introduction by CIS President and CEO Rey Saldaña, and an insightful, revealing conversation between Rey and Bill, examining CIS’s passionate grassroots mission and the goals they seek to achieve in the future. The Last Dropout traces the evolution of the CIS movement from a handful of groundbreaking “street academies” to a national network of hundreds of local affiliates.
