NEWLY LAUNCHED REPORT
The state’s economic prosperity is limited by an education system that lacks timely support, early in the system and during critical transition points. Supporting efforts to align K-12, community colleges, universities and industry with a focus on eliminating the achievement gaps is critical to maximizing economic growth for the state and economic security for marginalized members of our communities. Developmental education is a key step in the educational pipeline that links K-12, the community colleges and the universities. Across all genders and race/ethnicities, developmental education student outcomes are lower than for non-developmental students, as discussed in this report.
