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.
Accountability Weak For High School Transition To College
K-12 schools are loaded with testing and federal and state accountability, but not for post high school outcomes. According to Achieve Inc
only 7 states hold high schools acountable for completing a college or career ready curriculum. Student Attainment of a statewide college and career ready test score is not used in any state, but Texas is implementing this soon. Only 2 states have any high school accountability for placemnt in college remediation.
Many states are working on k-16 aligned curriculum content standards , but these will have little impact if there is no accountability to back them up.
