Closing the College Gap: A Roadmap to Postsecondary Readiness and Attainment

Examines new and existing data on three successive cohorts of young adults whose educational attainment at 25-34 years of age can be measured today or projected in the future. The report takes a dispassionate view of how the United States are actually doing on the key national priority of postsecondary attainment, on the pipeline from high school to postsecondary education, and on the way forward to boost college readiness, access, and persistence in the future. The report also works to develop a road map to postsecondary success for all.
