Title:College-ready students, student-ready colleges: An agenda for improving degree completion in postsecondary education
Organization:Center for American Progress
Short Description:This paper contends that America's higher education system has a readiness problem. Students are not ready for college, colleges are not ready for students, and public policy, long focused on making college more affordable, is not yet ready to take on the complex challenge of ensuring people successfully complete college degrees and transition into rewarding careers, as opposed to just getting in.
Annotation:This paper contends that America's higher education system has a readiness problem. Students are not ready for college, colleges are not ready for students, and public policy, long focused on making college more affordable, is not yet ready to take on the complex challenge of ensuring people successfully complete college degrees and transition into rewarding careers, as opposed to just getting in. To regain America’s global leadership in postsecondary education, especially among young adults age 25 to 34, the Center for American Progress recommends that federal policy be enhanced with a stronger focus on postsecondary completion and student and college readiness.
