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

This brief sponsored by Achieve, Inc., discusses the results from a poll of registered voters to examine: 1) whether they support the goal that students graduating high school should be college and career ready, and 2) whether they support the policies necessary to reach the goal. Voters polled indicated a strong belief in rigorous, well rounded high school academic requirements that are aligned with college and career expectations. Voters were split in their responses to questions on whether public high schools were sufficiently preparing students for their next steps and if raising graduation requirements would cause more students to drop out.
