http://www.thetakeaway.org/ Studies show less than half of the students in New York City high schools graduate on time. And many think that New York City is a rough place to go to school. The Takeaway invites two students from Democracy Prep Charter School in Harlem who think otherwise. Daniel Clark Jr., is 12 years old, and a seventh grader and Nia Hill-Mims is 13 years old, and an eighth grader. They are joined by Nia's mom Catherine Hill to talk about what it's like to go to charter school in New York City.
