    What Americans Think About The College and Career-Ready Agenda

    For years, state and local policymakers and education leaders have embraced the goal of graduating students college and career ready, vaulting the agenda to become a national priority - as evidenced by the more recent dialogue on education reform, including Race to the Top, Common Core State Standards, and common assessments. But, while policy leaders at all levels embrace the goal of college and career readiness for all, what does the public think?

    To find out, Achieve commissioned a survey of registered voters to find out whether they support both the goal of graduating all students from high school ready for college and careers and the necessary policies to meet that goal.

    The poll found support for the college- and career-ready agenda to be broad, deep and fully bipartisan. (August 2010) click here.
