On June 30, Governor Newsom signed the 2022–2023 state budget, which includes a $700 million investment in Golden State Pathways and dual enrollment.

We also want to share stories focusing on college and career readiness, mental health support, getting back to school after Covid, and more.

The pandemic exacerbated teacher shortages that must be addressed, and it also shined a light on the need to find new ways to engage and empower our young people. With thoughtful implementation to reach the communities and students who need it most, Golden State Pathways promises to help us do both, writes Teach Plus California's Sarah Lillis and Linked Learning Alliance's Anne Stanton.
