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.
Edweek Diploma Counts A Useful Information Source on P-16
The june 5 special issue of Diploma Counts by Edweek is the best overview of state p-16 councils in history! It has data on the 40 state councils and 3 outstanding case studies. I worked on all phases of this as an adviser to Edweeek and the result is outstanding from their writers. These councils are getting the right policymakers across p-16 to the table , and many are making some progress- but there is a long road ahead. Most councils lack adequate staff , and may not survive political turnover. But we have come a long way from a decade ago and the momentum is growing. My next blog will include a detailed op ed on the p-16 state concils from a historical perspective.
Do not miss the geographical GPS look at high school dropouts by Edweek in Diploma Counts. It includes a county and Congressional district specification.
