Minding the Gap: Why Integrating High School with College Makes Sense and How to Do It

Document Type



Minding the Gap argues that in today s highly competitive, global economy, all young people need a postsecondary education. Yet only one in ten students from the lowest economic quintile in the United States currently earns a postsecondary credential. This timely and instructive book from Jobs for the Future explores policies and practices that would quickly enable a larger number of low-income and first-generation college students to earn postsecondary degrees. In doing so, Minding the Gap calls for a system that thoroughly integrates secondary and postsecondary education a system in which a college degree is the goal for all students.
