This week on Making Democracy Work, host Debbie Good speaks with Dr. Tiffany Brunner, director of Middle College at Ozarks Technical Community College (OTC).

Today’s discussion explores the evolution of this program from 2008 to present day.  The initial goal was to reduce the high level of dropout rates in area high schools.  Today,  the goal has grown to also provide college and career opportunities to a variety of juniors and seniors.
