Condition of Higher Education

Condition of Higher Education

High school success doesn’t necessarily mean college preparedness.  As the U.S. continues to move toward an economy that requires post-secondary education and training, there is a significant need for districts and higher education institutions to better prepare their students to enter, persist, and complete college.

According to the ACT report The Condition of College & Career Readiness, in 2011, only 1 in 4 high school graduates met all four of its college readiness benchmarks. Even worse, perhaps, is that an even greater number – 28 percent – did not meet any of the benchmarks.

To learn more about college readiness and adult intervention, we’ve created a visual snapshot to capture the challenges educators face today, the need for adult intervention programs, and solutions to overcome them.
