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, 2008 is the third annual report in this series. The report details state progress implementing the American Diploma Project policy agenda. Achieve reports that while more than a third of states have raised high school standards and graduation requirements, there is more work to be done to ensure that all students graduate ready for college and careers.
