Provides recommendations to reform the program: 1) Expand availability of state and federal work-study funds for low-income and post-traditional students; 2) Strengthen collaboration and communication among employers, institutions, and students; 3) Enhance available program data; and 4) Fund experimentation that fosters innovative practices and further research.
