As more schools seek to instill a culture focused on college access and success, the American Association of School Administrators (AASA) offers a look at how such an agenda can drive K-12 improvement.

May 2, 2012
This recently recorded webinar examines lessons on building a college-going culture and using college-going data to drive reform, based on meetings that AASA (a Ready by 21 National Partner) and College Summit held around the country.

Among the lessons: Drop-out rates decrease and academic performance increases when school leaders emphasize post-secondary preparation and matriculation. When high schools dedicate themselves to getting all students career- and college-ready, students enjoy meaningful connections that help them set goals and persevere through obstacles. Speakers: Bryan Joffe and Robert McCord of AASA and Keith Frome of College Summit.
