Minding the Gap:

Why Integrating High School With College Makes Sense and How to Do It

Edited by Nancy Hoffman, Joel Vargas, Andrea Venezia, and Marc S. Miller

Minding the Gap argues that in today’s highly competitive, global economy, all young people need a postsecondary education. Yet only one in ten students from the lowest economic quintile in the United States currently earns a postsecondary credential. This timely and instructive book from Jobs for the Future explores policies and practices that would quickly enable a larger number of low-income and first-generation college students to earn postsecondary degrees. In doing so, Minding the Gap calls for a system that thoroughly integrates secondary and postsecondary education—a system in which a college degree is the goal for all students.

"I am thrilled to have this work featured in SBAN. My Summerbridge/Breakthrough experience as a student, teacher, and director inspired my interest in increasing the college readiness and success of low-income students. That's what the policy strategies featured in these books are designed to do." - Joel Vargas
