Accelerating Advancement in School and Work

Hilary Pennington

Brookings Papers on Education Policy, 2003 features a chapter by JFF CEO Hilary Pennington. "High schools today must meet the dual challenge of preparing all students to function at higher levels and performing better for those least well served," Pennington writes. She outlines how secondary school reform efforts can address the difficult transition from high school to postsecondary education and work. Edited by Diane Ravitch, Brookings Papers on Education Policy annually provides the latest thinking from nationally recognized experts on policy issues affecting grades K-12. The 2003 volume looks at high school reform.
