Our federal policy and advocacy work is focused on four high-level strategies for building policy environments that support personalized learning at scale. Each of these strategies emphasizes strong partnerships between federal, state and local leaders to ensure alignment and sustainable transformation across the education system.
- Incentivize effective transitions between K–12 and higher education to increase college enrollment and persistence. The federal government should better align our nation’s K-12 and postsecondary education systems through incentives in both the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) and the Higher Education Act (HEA). The federal government should encourage innovative strategies such as competency education and early college high schools that help students seamlessly transition from secondary to postsecondary education with the knowledge and skills to persist and earn a degree.
