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.
Education Week Grades College Transition State Policies
Education Week"s new Quality Counts
gives grades to states for college transition policies beginning on page 37. http://www.edweek.org/
. State policies average a C ,but the trend line is up. The leading state such as Ma, Mi, and Ga have implemented several policies that Edweek thinks are effective. Only 15 states have a defintition of college readiness that is specific in terms of what content should be learned. Only, 3 states require a college preparation
curriculum to graduate from high school .
College transition is increasingly on the state policy agenda, but follow through and passage is still slow.
