Preparing Today's High School Students for Tomorrow's Opportunities
Achieve, Inc.
This brochure provides an overview of the American Diploma Project (ADP) Network and describes the urgent need for improvements to the U.S. educational pipeline to ensure that all students are adequately prepared for the demands of the twenty-first century workplace. Through the ADP Network, states will: (1) make their high school standards, assessments and curriculum more challenging; (2) make them more relevant and engaging by better aligning them with the real-world demands of postsecondary education and work; and (3) hold high schools and postsecondary institutions accountable for improved performance. [This brochure was produced through a partnership of Achieve, Inc.; The Education Trust; Jobs for the Future; the Thomas B. Fordham Foundation; and The Charles A. Dana Center, University of Texas at Austin.]
