Transitions to Post-Secondary Education and Employment: Q&A

For the full presentation, please go to:

Federal, state and local education policy seem to be aligning behind the goal of "college for all." This session will examine a range of questions about the nature, efficacy, and feasibility of this goal. What types of post-secondary credentials are most useful for productive participation in today’s economic, civic, and cultural institutions? How can we ensure that high school students have access to and then attain these credentials? Does the school-to-work transition need to lead through college? Is there a role for career and technical education in the preparation for transitions to post-secondary education and work? To what extent and how should high schools be held accountable for student outcomes after graduation?
