New York Times Op-Ed
In the final Race to the Top Guidelines, the U.S. Department of Education has included a requirement that states concrete plan, with ambitious yet achievable goals, for “increasing college enrollment…and increasing the number of students who complete at least a year’s worth of college credit that is applicable to a degree within two years…”
The administration has suggested that Race to the Top signals the changes that will be made in the upcoming Elementary and Secondary Education Act reauthorization; that it includes college enrollment and college proficiency requirements indicates a massive paradigm shift in American public education.
In “High School’s Last Test,” published in The New York Times, College Summit CEO J.B. Schramm and former College Summit president E. Kinney Zalesne congratulate the administration for recognizing the necessity of repurposing high school to produce college- and career-ready students.
