Getting Students to Graduation and beyond. Research Brief
Walker, Karen
Education Partnerships, Inc.
With higher expectations for graduation, what are ways to keep students in school and graduate? To have a 100% graduation rate with students who are prepared for higher education or the work place is certainly a major goal of high schools. This has been strongly reinforced by schools needing to meet Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) as mandated by No Child Left Behind. Many schools across the United States have implemented programs that will help their students attain an appropriate level of literacy in the different content areas, do better on standardized tests and other assessments, inspire them to stay in school and graduate, and participate in a post-secondary program. This paper describes common themes expressed throughout the literature that should be considered and implemented prior to establishing specific programs. A list of program ideas is also mentioned.
