Linked Learning Youth Survey

Student Insights on the 2022 School Year, State Policy, and More

Our state’s economic development depends on the success of students like those in LinkedLearning pathways. With nearly $2 billion proposed in the California State budget to invest in college and career readiness through approaches like high-quality pathways and dual enrollment, it’s even more important to understand the impact these experiences have on California’s young people—and to bring their needs and aspirations into the statewide conversation. The Linked Learning Alliance is fielding a survey of young people in Linked Learning college and career pathways throughout the state. This document presents preliminary findings.

Linked Learning pathways deliver high-quality academics in concert with career-technical education and work-based learning opportunities, access to early college credit, and integrated student supports. First piloted in nine California districts in 2009, LinkedLearning is now embraced as the high school strategy for a growing number of districts across the state and beyond. Today Linked Learning is at work in more than 50 California school districts, with 400 educational pathways operating in 195 high schools.

The more than $2 billion in state funding for Golden State Pathways (GSP) program and dual enrollment is a critical investment in youth during their decade of difference, a period from ages 14 to 24, when research shows young people develop their identities, dispositions, and lifelong aspirations. In California, too many are disconnecting from learning and their potential during this formative time, a reality exacerbated by the pandemic. We cannot afford to lose this talent.
