Better Road Map For Effective High School College Partnerships
Co-authors Joel Vargas of JFF and Andrea Venezia of the Education Insights Center outline the principles of co-design, co-delivery, and co-validation that must guide new partnerships between high school and postsecondary systems to raise college readiness and success. The paper frames how educators can build upon momentum to increase collective responsibility and solutions across systems. It provides a framework that can be used to guide evidence-based experimentation within and across K-12 and postsecondary education systems. It also describes the practices of exemplary partnerships around the country and suggests policies to promote the development of more partnerships that can spread this innovative work.
