New Blog Offers Analysis of Pathways to College and Career

By Caralee J. Adams — July 17, 2015 1 min read

While news from the federal government last month about high school graduation rates was encouraging, a closer look shows not all pockets of the country are celebrating.

Check out the new Education Week blog, High School & Beyond, by my colleague Catherine Gewertz. In Thursday’s entry, she highlights that in Iowa 89 percent of entering 9th grade students finish high school with a diploma within four years while the rates dip as low as 59 percent in the District of Columbia. Other recent reports from the National Center for Education Statistics show students who are least likely to graduate in four years are those still learning English, those with disabilities, and Native American and African-American students.

And today’s entry highlights the high school accountability provisions that made it into the version of the No Child Left Behind reauthorization bill that was passed Thursday by the Senate—as well as those that didn’t.

Expect more analysis of policies that shape adolescents’ preparation for college and careers in the new blog, which made its debut this week. Gewertz is a veteran education reporter who is sure to bring the latest news and insight on issues affecting middle and high school students as they navigate pathways leading to postsecondary learning, job-training, and careers—especially those students who face the greatest odds .
