Purpose of Program: Earning a postsecondary degree or credential is a prerequisite for the growing jobs of the new economy and the clearest pathway to the middle class.
Our children deserve an education that provides a path to becoming a knowledgeable, actively engaged citizen. Is being “middle class” the best most Americans can hope to become.
Agency Information Collection Activities; Submission to the Office of Management and Budget for Review and Approval; Comment Request; Roads to Success in North Dakota: A Randomized Study of a College and Career Preparation Curriculum
Abstract: The Office of Career, Technical, and Adult Education in the U.S. Department of Education is supporting an evaluation that will examine the impact of a college and career preparation curriculum for students in the 11th and 12th grades on students’ college and career aspirations, planning for postsecondary transitions and adult life, and attitudes toward education and careers. The evaluation has an experimental design with school-level random assignment; this Information Collection Request includes surveys of students, instructors, and principals and protocols for site visits.
Collecting more data on our children does not foster academic or personal success.

Purpose of Program: The FITW program is designed to support the development, replication, and dissemination of innovative solutions and evidence for what works in addressing persistent and widespread challenges in postsecondary education for students who are at risk for not persisting in and completing postsecondary programs, including, but not limited to, adult learners, working students, part-time students, students from low-income backgrounds, students of color, students with disabilities, and first-generation students.
For many, the challenges of completing college have always existed and been met by these same groups of individuals throughout history.
We must change our system of education at the elementary level.
We must change education so that it concentrates on our children’s gifts and talents.
Every child in America deserves a free and public education that prepares them for personal and academic success.
