Early Colleges as a Model for Schooling advocates for early college high schools as an effective means of reducing academic, cultural, and financial obstacles to postsecondary education.


Praise

Edmunds and her coauthors have built a compelling case for why and how early colleges create a vision for transforming the American high school and its relationship to higher education. It is firmly grounded in years of rigorous research nationally and brought to life showing how students’ experiences are positively impacted by practices and policies that weld and meld our fractured secondary and postsecondary systems. — Joel Vargas, vice president, Jobs for the Future

Early Colleges as a Model for Schooling represents an important contribution to the field of education policy and practice. The early college idea is poorly understood, minimally studied (compared to other significant concepts in education reform), and vastly underutilized (relative to the proven success of its outcomes). This book addresses all three in a serious and useful way. — Stephen Tremaine, Vice President for Early Colleges, Bard College
