High School dropouts get personal visits in Rochester

High school dropouts in Rochester won’t easily slip out of school under a new initiative called We Want You Back.
Superintendent Michael Munoz told the Rochester Post-Bulletin that 200 to 300 students who started school in the district last year didn’t finish. On Saturday, 115 volunteers fanned out to knock on those students' doors and try to get them registered for classes, the newspaper reports.
No word yet on how many they were successful in luring back to school.
Beyonce owned the MTV Video Music Awards by winning video of the year and giving a 16-minute performance featuring her recent hits from "Lemonade," working various stages with strong, layered vocals, skilled dance moves and even an outfit change — all as the audience watched in awe and cheered her on.
