Moving Indiana Forward: High Standards and High Graduation Rates

Jobs for the Future and Achieve, Inc.

JFF and Achieve conducted a strategic assessment for Indiana education policymakers on how the state can create a more coherent, intentional, and aligned use of standards-based and support-based high school reform strategies and policies to improve both achievement and graduation rates for struggling and out-of-school students. This report presents findings and recommendations from a policy analysis centered on three major areas where state action could lead to improvements in the high school graduation rate without compromising on high standards: data and accountability; interventions in the high schools losing the most students; and quality pathways to graduation.

The assessment was conducted as part of Moving Forward: High Standards and High Graduation Rates, an initiative jointly sponsored by Achieve, Inc., and JFF and funded by Carnegie Corporation of New York.
