My blog discusses the important and complex subjects of college completion, college success, student risk factors (for failing), college readiness, and academic preparation. I will explore the pieces of the college puzzle that heavily influence, if not determine, college success rates.

Jobs for the Future in Boston has summarized the key findings of a October conference with 500 leaders on transition from secondary school to broad access colleges http://doublethenumbers.org/
* Create multiple pathways that enable all students to graduate high school prepared for college and work
*Incorporate college-level leraning experiences into the high school years.
*Restructure developmental course sequences and upgrade student supports
* Strategic management of institutional spending in expanded capacity and improved student learning.
JFF has a strong focus on out of school youth and very low acheiving students. To see the details on these four strategies, go to the website.
