Blueprint for College Readiness: A 50-State Policy Analysis
The Blueprint Report is designed by state leaders to feature a menu of 10 critical policies that promote college readiness and success, specifically improving student success and transition from high school to post-secondary education. The Blueprint “is designed to serve as a framework to help K-12 and higher education leaders conceptualize the multitude of education reform efforts underway in their states” (p. 3). The 10 policies include four in high school, four in post-secondary, and two “bridge” policies that impact both sets of stakeholders. The 10 policies described in the Blueprint “enable states to bring together college and career readiness, transition and degree attainment goals” (p. 3). The 50-state analysis examines the extent to which states are pursuing the 10 policies.
