This resource from the Everyone Graduates Center at Johns Hopkins discusses what progress is being made on a range of education reforms, policies, and practices that help ensure more students graduate from high school and ready for college and productive work. The authors talk about what is taking place at the national level and examine the challenges faced by different racial and ethnic groups. They provide an outline of their “Civic Marshall Plan to Build a Grad Nation” and a variety of recommendations including using a strategic, geared approach, focusing on low graduation rate communities, building and enabling state and district capacity to improve graduation and college readiness rates, and accelerating graduation rates.
