INTEGRATION WITH COLLEGE AND CAREER
We must create flexible and seamless options for low-income children to gain the knowledge and skills needed to successfully transition from high school to college, other post-secondary pathways, and/or workforce training models that lead to careers.
This includes expanding access to the California Golden State Pathways Program, requiring high-needs districts to offer AP or IB classes and Career Technical Education courses, and removing barriers that prevent students from accessing high-quality, dual enrollment and career pathways.
The goal is to increase A-G (college-ready) completion and access to dual enrollment programs, apprenticeships, and other work-based learning for credit, as well as to develop rigorous coursework aligned to high-wage, high-demand jobs and careers. This will require collaborating closely with industry leaders, postsecondary institutions, and employers.
