Federal, state and local education policy seem to be aligning behind the goal of “college for all.” This panel discussion will examine a range of questions about the nature, efficacy, and feasibility of this goal. What types of post-secondary credentials are most useful for productive participation in today’s economic, civic, and cultural institutions? Does the school-to-work transition need to lead through college? To what extent and how should high schools be held accountable for student outcomes after graduation?
The Education Policy Breakfast series, presented by NYU’s Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development, concludes its three-part series on educational transitions with a panel discussion on post-secondary education and employment on Friday, April 16, from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., Rosenthal Pavilion, Kimmel Center for University Life, 10th floor, 60 Washington Square South (at LaGuardia Place). [Subways: A, B, C, D, E, F (West 4th Street)].

Stone III, director, National Research Center for Career and Technical Education, and professor, College of Education and Human Development, University of Louisville; and James Kemple, executive director, Research Alliance for New York City Schools at NYU’s Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development.
