Location, location, location. We all know it matters when making investments in housing. But what about location’s effect on education? If a student lives in a more affluent neighborhood, he or she may receive a better-quality education. Disparities from one neighborhood to another can range from differences in course offerings, funding, and the number of highly skilled teachers. Neighborhoods with lower income residents can have a difficult time attracting highly skilled teachers.
California will increase the focus on college and career readiness at select high schools this fall. Beginning in October, the state’s Department of Education will release $200 million through its K–12 College Readiness Block Grant to prepare California disadvantaged high school students to meet admission requirements for California public universities. These grants aim to increase college attendance of underserved California high school students while providing administrators, counselors, and teachers with strategies for improving course completion rates, college readiness, and college-going rates.
The National College Access Network has recently released a white paper assessing data platforms used by college access and success programs nationwide. Respondent feedback regarding Naviance was overwhelmingly positive.
