The Liberty Partnership Program (LPP) was established in 1988 under Section 612, Subdivision 6 of the Education Law to address the significant dropout rate among New York's youth. The legislation stated, "The failure of many young New Yorkers to complete their secondary education limits their opportunity for a life of fulfillment, presents them from advancing into postsecondary education and hinders the state's efforts to provide a well-trained workforce for business and industry in New York." LPP at Long Island University Brooklyn (LIU Brooklyn) is one of 40 programs funded by the New York State Education Department.
