  • A few features of current educational landscape: More student going…good but what happens when they get there? More students are arriving unprepared More students are first-generation college attenders, a population we know to be vulnerable and in need of support 2. Current administration and many of the trends in education policy using the rhetoric of college and career readiness which is great, but we have to understand that college and career readiness is not the same as college eligibility and treat is as a different goal 3. Current economic climate is such that completing a degree or certificate program is critical. Gone are the days where a high school education was enough to land a job that offered stability and benefits. EPIC sees college readiness and career readiness as being strongly linked; success in an associates or certificate program often relies on the same set of skills as success at a four-year institution
  • Best performing states (left to right): Vermont, South Dakota, Massachusetts, Massachusetts
  • The goal of high school is to equip as many students as possible with a core set of knowledge, tools, strategies, and skills necessary for college and career success In other words, to be able to continue their education beyond high school College eligibility is not the same as college readiness The capacity of students to learn is malleable and not fixed Achievement is a function of effort, not solely ability, or, worse yet, “intelligence”
  • Vision is fully integrated system Users may enter the system with any tool Each tool leads into other tools Appropriate for changing educational systems – from students, to teachers/classrooms, to schools and districts, to curriculum and assessment, to through middle and high school into postsecondary education Users may become engaged in any number of sequences Redesign and reform deepens as multiple tools are incorporated

    3. 3. Nature of the Challenge• The proportion of students going on to postsecondary education has steadily increased over the past 100 years and is likely to continue to increase.• National education policy is beginning to emphasize college and career readiness over basic skills instruction.• Today’s young people will need to be better educated and prepared as the US continues to move to a knowledge/information economic model. 3
