Achieving the Possible: What Americans Think About The College- and Career- Agenda

This brief discusses the findings from a poll, funded by Achieve, Inc., to gain insight on how the general public perceives the college and career-ready agenda in education. The results indicate that there is strong agreement that postsecondary education and training of some sort is needed in order to succeed and that strong standards and assessments are needed to ensure students graduate ready for postsecondary education. The authors conclude the brief by explaining the implications of these results on education reform moving forward, namely that the public is ready and willing to be part of the debate and should be engaged by policymakers when pushing for policy change.
