Career Readiness Planning Program
Requires “consistent precollege readiness assessments to increase successful student transitions into postsecondary education” And,
Measure student readiness for future learning without remediation to improve college and workforce readiness
Increasing the high school and college graduation rate of male students in Arkansas by only five percent could lead to a combined savings and revenue of almost $77 million each year by reducing crime-related costs (Alliance for Excellent Education, June 2007).
According to Arkansas’ Kuder data
There are 12% more girls in the 11th and 12th grades compared to a 50/50 ratio in the 8th grade.
According to Ark Dept of Higher Ed
There are about 10% more girls graduating than boys from 4-year universities.
If Arkansas’ high schools and colleges raise the graduation rates of Hispanic, African-American, and Native-American students to the levels of white students by 2020, the potential increase in personal income would add more than $785 million to the state economy.
If Arkansas’ likely dropouts from the class of 2006 graduated instead, the state could save more than $94 million in Medicaid and expenditures for uninsured care over the course of those young people’s lifetimes.
Almost 50% of college students never graduate
30% of college students leave school at the end of their first year and another 30% take five or six years to earn their degree
Dropouts from the class of 2006 cost the state more than $2.7 billion in lost wages, taxes, and productivity over their lifetimes
