Document Number: 6650The Link Between High School Reform and College Access and Success for Low-Income and Minority Youth - This study examines programs and policies that can help underserved youth complete high school ready for postsecondary education. The mechanisms considered include aligning high school curricula and assessments with college entrance requirements; aligning systems through dual enrollment, early and middle colleges, Tech Prep and 2+2 Articulation, Project GRAD and GEAR UP; and numerous programs that target both academic and social support, such as AVID, Coalition of Essential Schools, First Things First, High Schools That Work, Talent Development High Schools, GE Foundation College Bound and small learning environments.
