Does "Diplomas Now" Work?

There are three Chicago schools -- Talent Development High School, Gage Park High School,  and John Hope College Preparatory -- doing Diplomas Now, a Johns Hopkins University social support program that uses City Year, Communities in Schools, and other approaches to help 6th-10th grade kids stay in school. There are now 44 schools participating, including this one featured on PBS last week, plus another 20 to come. Anybody familiar with the approach, or know how it's different or better (worse) than other approaches? Video below.
