Beyond High School, before Baccalaureate: Meaningful Alternatives to a Four-Year Degree
Education Week, v30 n34 p1-30 Jun 2011
This paper presents 2011 edition of "Diplomas Count" which explores career-related study pathways for students that lie in the space between a high school diploma and a four-year degree-options such as community college, "early college," or high school career training that leads to occupational certification. It looks as well at what high schools can do to expose students to a broader range of postsecondary pathways, many of which can also serve as a steppingstone to a bachelor's degree. "Diplomas Count 2011" contains the latest original analysis of high school completion conducted by the Editorial Projects in Education Research Center. It finds that the national graduation rate stands at 71.7 percent for the class of 2008--the highest level since the 1980s.
