Brewster to chair task force on dropout crisis

A local school official has been named to lead a study on solutions to the national dropout crisis.
The National Association of State Boards of Education (NASBE) has announced that Dr. Thomas Brewster, a member of the Virginia Board of Education, has been chosen to chair a year-long NASBE study group, convened in partnership with Communities in Schools (the nation’s largest dropout prevention organization), to identify unique policy and community-state partnership solutions to the devastating dropout rates facing some of the nation’s most impacted communities.
Locally, Brewster is the assistant superintendent for administration for Pulaski County Public Schools.
“With a long track-record of state-based work on high school reform, the NASBE membership has recommitted itself to identifying ways to serve all students, including those most at risk of dropping out of school,” said Brenda Welburn, NASBE Executive Director. “NASBE, the board of directors, and the membership stand to benefit from Tom’s energy, knowledge, and commitment to making our public schools the best they can be. In his role as study group chair, he will help identify and implement state education policies that transform the conditions that contribute to dropping out of school and increase rates of student success, including effective school, family, and community partnerships.”
As chair of the 17-member national study group, Brewster will meet with other state policymakers, student dropout prevention experts, and education reform leaders over the course of the year to examine high school dropout issues with direct policy implications for State Boards of Education and other national, state, and local education policymakers.
