As a hub for the Linked Learning movement, the Alliance offers research, stories, and tools that help people understand the impact of Linked Learning and implement this approach at high levels of quality.
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.
This policy guide, created in partnership with the College in High School Alliance, Everyone Graduates Center, Linked Learning Alliance, and National College Attainment Network, encourages state and district leaders to use federal coronavirus relief funds to improve college access and success, especially for students who are historically underserved and under-represented in higher education.
New funds for educational recovery from the pandemic present a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get student learning on track and our educational systems in shape to better serve all students. To be effective, steps forward must start this summer.
With an influx of highly flexible federal and state COVID relief resources, school districts and youth-serving organizations can increase the number and types of paid learning experiences they offer to students.
As states and districts contemplate how to best use their COVID-19 relief funding, they should think differently about addressing lost learning and building better systems for the future. College and career pathways fit the bill on all counts, writes Linked Learning Alliance president Anne Stanton and Alliance for Excellent Education president and CEO Deborah S. Delisle.
The Linked Learning Alliance captures and amplifies learnings, best practices, and collective challenges to support the growing network of Linked Learning partners, continually adding new tools and materials to our Resource Library. We share this information to ensure you have access to best practices and can see how other educators, community leaders and industry partners are building, implementing and tracking integrated college and career preparation policies, practices and programs.
