Report of the Commission on Access, Admissions and Success in Higher Education
Posted by on March 16, 2009
“Coming to Our Senses: Education and the American Future,” Report of the Commission on Access, Admissions and Success in Higher Education, December 2008.
“‘Coming to Our Senses’ defines a clear and ambitious goal of ensuring that at least 55 percent of Americans hold a postsecondary credential by 2025. We can attain that goal by increasing current completion rates by 1 percent annually. This document describes in clear and unvarnished terms the ways in which our K-12 and academic systems have stood by as large numbers of students dropped out of school, while many others who enrolled in college failed to finish. And it lays out an action agenda to move forward, one that calls on everyone — schools, colleges and universities; parents and students; and state and national leaders — to do their part. A compulsion to excel elsewhere in the world has transformed education globally; it is time we developed that same compulsion.”
