Obama's Blueprint for Reauthorizing ESEA includes Early College, Dual Credit, and AP Coursework

2000-vs-2007 Degree Attainment
...(W)e must achieve a new goal, that by 2020, the United States will once again lead the world in college completion.
- President Barack Obama

On Saturday, the Obama Administration released its blueprint[1] for revising the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). More popularly known in its current authorization as the No Child Left Behind Act, the suggested blueprint calls for every student to graduate from high school ready for college and a career, regardless of their income, race, ethnic or language background, or disability status. ESEA is up for reauthorization in Congress this year.

While the law impacts education at every level, the administration's proposal calls for competitive grants to states, districts, and nonprofit partners to increase access to accelerated learning opportunities for students. Included are activities that help students prepare for, or directly provide, college-level work including early-college or dual-enrollment (dual credit) programs and Advanced Placement (AP) programs.

This recommendation supports programs already in operation in Stark County, such as Canton's Early College High School, dual credit which reached 2,350 enrollments this year and over 1,600 students who take AP coursework.
