Topic: College and Career Readiness
Today’s workplace requires most Americans to have some form of education beyond high school. Yet more than half of high school students are not graduating well-prepared to be successful in credit-bearing, entry-level courses at two- or four-year colleges.
Increasing the percentage students who begin college without the need for remedial courses can reduce the cost of college and improve college graduation rates.
SREB policy and programs to improve readiness for all students is central to our core mission of helping states increase educational attainment and grow their economies.
