Description

Competency Based Education: How Innovative Changes to the Education System can Support Opportunity Youth

Homelessness, credit deficiency, pregnancy, and working to support their families are all issues preventing students in disadvantaged communities from finishing school. High school seat time requirements that place a greater emphasis on time, place, or pace of learning, rather than competency, when measuring success are preventing innovative and alternative education models from serving these “opportunity youth.” Join the discussion about the issues opportunity youth face, programs that work, and how policy can change the landscape of graduation in America.
