ESR Examines Increasing Access to Postsecondary Education
ESR is please to announce the publication of “Increasing College Access through School-Based Models of Postsecondary Preparation, Planning, and Support” by Carol Miller Lieber, with contributions by Jennifer Allen, Martha Mullane, Kathleen Mullin, and Denise Wolk.
This paper grows out of ESR’s commitment to contribute to core practices that reduce educational disparities and facilitate equal access to quality instruction, supports, and opportunities for all secondary students.
The authors explore the essential question of how we shift the paradigm of postsecondary access, especially in urban schools, from working intensively with some students to supporting and guiding the future aspirations of all the young people in their care. The paper posits four comprehensive school-based models for achieving postsecondary preparation, planning, and support for all students, and identifies key policy changes that would support these models.
