The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) presents a unique opportunity for states and districts to help more young people enter and complete college by implementing school designs that improve the transition between high school and higher education. Early college and dual enrollment opportunities, which introduce high school students to college coursework, offer the potential to accelerate progression into—and success in—postsecondary education for students of all backgrounds. ESSA explicitly encourages states to use these approaches.
