Competency Education Can Address Readiness Gaps - But Not Alone

The latest blog from Stephanie Krauss on some of the shocking truths about teens facing the "readiness gap."
Information Update
January 9, 2015
 

Stephanie Krauss has seen up close the deep inequalities faced by many young people in under-resourced communities: through the experience of her brother, who attended one of the best public high schools in his state, versus the experience of students in the alternative high school that she ran, many of whom had attended "dropout factories." Krauss, senior fellow at the Forum for Youth Investment, was reminded of that stark reality as she read Jobs for the Future's latest report, Equity in Education: Realizing the Potential, Overcoming the Obstacles. 

In her latest blog for Students at the Center, Krauss combines her experience and the report's findings to discuss some of the shocking truths about teens facing the "readiness gap."
