St. Louis public schools college and career readiness

ST. LOUIS- Almost 40 percent of low-income, minority students who have been admitted to college will not be enrolled come August.

The Associates Superintendent of College and Career Readiness Dr. Beth Bender joined FOX 2 to explain one of their main goals, cutting down on what's known as 'Summer Melt'.
