3-7-16: Between 2011 and 2015, Garner High cut its annual dropout rate from 5.62% to 1.42%, a 75% drop, Matt Dees writes for EdNC. Assistant Principal Joe Bundens: “I don’t think we’re doing anything that other high schools aren’t doing…. We have a lot of good people who care about our kids being successful….
