Dual Enrollment: Policy Issues Confronting State Policymakers. Policy Brief
Krueger, Carl
Education Commission of the States (NJ1)
The transition to a knowledge-based economy is fueling the demand for well-educated, technically proficient workers--in all sectors, across a wide range of occupations and even for entry-level positions. New civic demands also call for a highly educated populace. Although more students today begin college than 20 years ago, greater proportions are not graduating. Whatever form they take--dual enrollment, middle college or early college programs--multiple enrollment options provide students with the rigor of a college curriculum while still in high school, and the opportunity to receive both high school and college credits. This policy brief provides background information about dual enrollment and summarizes the research surrounding the issue. Examples of state dual enrollment programs and a list of policy considerations are also included. An annotated list of additional resources concludes the brief. (Contains 26 endnotes.)
