Beyond the Skills Gap

Preparing College Students for Life and Work
Matthew T. Hora with Ross J. Benbow and Amanda K. Oleson

How can educators ensure that young people who attain a postsecondary credential are adequately prepared for the future? Matthew T. Hora and his colleagues explain that the answer is not simply that students need more specialized technical training to meet narrowly defined employment opportunities. Beyond the Skills Gap challenges this conception of the “skills gap,” highlighting instead the value of broader twenty-first-century skills in postsecondary education. They advocate for a system in which employers share responsibility along with the education sector to serve the collective needs of the economy, society, and students.

Beyond Tracking

Multiple Pathways to College, Career, and Civic Participation
Edited by Jeannie Oakes and Marisa Saunders

Beyond Tracking responds to the sobering assessment of American high schools by delineating and promoting an innovative and well-defined notion of multiple pathways. The book’s authors clearly distinguish their use of the term “multiple pathways” from any updated version of the tracking system that marked so many American high schools during the past century. Instead, Oakes and Saunders propose a system of multiple pathways that will “provide both the academic and real-world foundations that students need for advanced learning, training, and preparation for responsible civic participation.”

Blueprint for Tomorrow

Redesigning Schools for Student-Centered Learning
Prakash Nair

The United States has about $2 trillion tied up in aging school facilities. School districts throughout the country spend about $12 billion every year keeping this infrastructure going. Yet almost all of the new money we pour into school facilities reinforces an existing—and obsolete—model of schooling.

Breakthrough Strategies

Classroom-Based Practices to Support New Majority College Students
Kathleen A. Ross, Foreword by Michelle Asha Cooper

Breakthrough Strategies identifies effective strategies that faculty have used to help New Majority students—those from minority, immigrant, or disadvantaged backgrounds—build the necessary skills to succeed in college. As the proportion of New Majority students rises, there is increased attention to helping them gain access to college. Once enrolled, however, these students often face significant challenges of adjustment, with few resources for support. Specifically, there is little attention to students’ experiences within their college classrooms and their relationships with professors. At the same time, faculty who work with these students have little guidance on how to help them adjust to new expectations and identities as they engage with college-level work.

Broader, Bolder, Better

How Schools and Communities Help Students Overcome the Disadvantages of Poverty
Elaine Weiss and Paul Reville

In Broader, Bolder, Better, authors Elaine Weiss, of the Broader, Bolder Approach to Education campaign, and Paul Reville, former Massachusetts education secretary, make a compelling case for a fundamental change in the way we view education. The authors argue for a large-scale expansion of community-school partnerships in order to provide integrated student supports (ISS) from cradle to careers, including traditional wraparound services like mental health and nutrition supports, as well as early childhood education, afterschool and enrichment programs, and family supports.
