Multiple Pathways

Beyond Tracking

Multiple Pathways to College, Career, and Civic Participation
Edited by Jeannie Oakes and Marisa Saunders

Beyond Tracking responds to the sobering assessment of American high schools by delineating and promoting an innovative and well-defined notion of multiple pathways. The book’s authors clearly distinguish their use of the term “multiple pathways” from any updated version of the tracking system that marked so many American high schools during the past century. Instead, Oakes and Saunders propose a system of multiple pathways that will “provide both the academic and real-world foundations that students need for advanced learning, training, and preparation for responsible civic participation.”
