All students should graduate from high school ready for college, careers, and citizenship.
Moving Indiana Forward: High Standards and High Graduation Rates is a joint report from Achieve and Jobs for the Future. The report provides a strategic assessment for Indiana policymakers on how they can use standards and support-based high school reform strategies to improve both achievement and graduation rates. The recommendations include counting and accounting for all students, while keeping in mind the goal of college and career readiness; identifying the high schools that are losing the most youth and targeting those schools for immediate and significant intervention; and analyzing the supply of high-quality options and creating new pathways to high school graduation for struggling youth.
