Another View: Norfolk's Open Campus High School
As a part of WHRO/WHRV's continuing effort to improve high school graduation rates, Another View explores the Norfolk Public Schools' "Open Campus" - a Magic Johnson Bridgescape Academy. At the "Open Campus", students who have dropped out of school or are at risk of dropping out are given a second chance to earn their high school diploma. Flexible hours, online classes and career and life counseling are provided as tools to help students succeed despite life's challenges. Our guests include the Director of the Open Campus, Daun Hester, along with student T'Evon Spicer, and Jennifer Parker, Executive Director with EdisonLearning, the creators of the Magic Johnson Bridgescape Academies nationwide.
