On November 9, 2016, the Alliance for Excellent Education and Change the Equation held a webinar on Next-Generation High Schools. The national graduation rate is at an all-time high yet one in five high school students fail to earn a high school diploma. Achievement gaps and graduation gaps between white students and students of color and students from low-income families remain large. Large percentages of high school graduates must take remedial courses in college. Throughout the country, however, many high schools are successfully preparing all students, including those who are traditionally underserved, to succeed in college and a career.
Featuring selections and unseen footage from the Sundance-acclaimed film Most Likely to Succeed, this event showcased how schools can change the high school experience to provide all students with a twenty-first-century education that prepares them for success. It also examined the role that the federal government and the business community can play in transforming the nation’s high schools.
The Alliance for Excellent Education is a Washington, DC–based national policy and advocacy organization dedicated to ensuring that all students, particularly those traditionally underserved, graduate from high school ready for success in college, work, and citizenship. www.all4ed.org
