KIPP Foundation Calls for Change to Higher Ed
The KIPP Foundation recently released a report to highlight changes that must be made to address student needs in achieving higher education degrees, especially for students of color, first generation college students, and students from low-income families.
On average, college graduates earn more, vote more, volunteer more, enjoy more job security, and are healthier than people without a college degree. A college degree also increases the likelihood of intergenerational economic mobility. Of course, many students do not choose to go directly to college or attend college at all.
However, far too many young people face a vast array of unfair and unnecessary barriers on the road to and through college and into the workforce. KIPP’s newly released report recommends five bold recommendations to Transform Higher Education through the reauthorization of the Higher Education Act.
