This book from JFF and Harvard Education Press 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 explores policies and practices that would quickly enable a larger number of low-income and first-generation college students to earn postsecondary degrees. 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.
