Community Schools Seek to Improve High School Achievement, College Readiness
Gilroy, Marilyn
Education Digest: Essential Readings Condensed for Quick Review, v77 n1 p49-52 Sep 2011
The Coalition for Community Schools, an alliance of more than 150 national, state, and local organizations, is bringing public schools in partnership with community resources to improve student success. While that might seem like an abstract idea, it has very concrete goals, such as boosting high school graduation rates and college readiness. Through its Community Agenda for America's Public Schools, the coalition is focused on improving the lives and achievement rates of struggling youth while also providing services to families. It does so by involving a broad range of community-based education, health, social service, higher education, and parent-focused organizations in the work of educating young people.
