Printer-friendly version

Each year, on the anniversary of the 2005 National Education Summit on High Schools, Achieve releases an annual 50-state progress report on the alignment of high school policies with the demands of college and careers. Closing the Expectations Gap, 2007 is the second annual report in this series. This survey updates the efforts of all 50 states to align their high school standards, graduation requirements, assessments, and accountability systems with the demands of college and work, and finds that at least 48 states were actively engaged in reform efforts of some kind at that time.
