Date:2010
Organization:Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation
Short Description:The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s work in the US is focused on two major initiatives: ensuring that a high school education should result in college readiness and that postsecondary education should result in a degree or certificate with genuine economic value. This paper is focused on the postsecondary effort.
Annotation:The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s work in the US is focused on two major initiatives: ensuring that a high school education should result in college readiness and that postsecondary education should result in a degree or certificate with genuine economic value. This paper is focused on the postsecondary effort. For young people today, having the will and not the way to attain a postsecondary credential impedes their economic and personal progress, affecting not only their prospects but those of their children. In the near and long term, this situation compromises our nation’s ability to compete effectively in a global economy—to produce young adults capable of taking on the demands of and succeeding in a 21st century workplace and democracy. That’s why the Foundation set an ambitious goal to help the nation double the number of low-income adults who earn postsecondary degrees or credentials—meaningful credentials with value in the workplace and labor market—by age 26. To accomplish this, America must connect the millions of young Americans who have the will to get the education they need with a way to get there.
