The College Ladder: Linking Secondary and Postsecondary Education for Success for All Students


Aimed at policymakers and practioners, this new American Youth Policy Forum report is the "result of a two-year effort to identify, summarize, and analyze schools, programs, and policies that link secondary and postsecondary education to help students earn college credit or take college-level courses. To be inclusive of the variety of models and programs that link secondary and postsecondary education, AYPF will use the term Secondary-Post- Secondary Learning Options (SPLOs). AYPF focused on identifying SPLOs serving first-generation, lowincome, and low-performing students, students with disabilities, and underrepresented minorities."
