"The Gateway to College National is a national program that’s in twenty-something states and forty-something colleges across the country. And these kids have an alma mater; they have a home; they have other kids that are just like them. And this isn’t about being a dropout; this is about picking yourself up and figuring out what learning environment works for you and completing that and going on and doing what you have to do for yourself."
