The Challenge • “The United States higher education system is becoming less of a meritocracy. In the last decade, the percentage of students from families at the highest income levels who got a bachelor’s degree has grown to 82 percent, while for those at the bottom it has fallen to just 8 percent.” • Jeff Selingo, editor at large of The Chronicle of Higher Education, from his forthcoming book, “College (Un)bound: The Future of Higher Education and What it Means for Students.”
Say Yes’ Central Goal To ensure college and career readiness at scale, sustained over the long term throughout communities. • Scholarship Incentive—Public and private college scholarships. • Systems and Structures—Cross sector and cross government collaboration to develop civic infrastructure aligned to post-secondary completion goal. Say Yes serves as an honest broker and facilitator to initiate and guide this process. • Student Supports—Comprehensive and coordinated student and family supports to address academic, social/emotional, health, and financial needs. Say Yes’ Three Levers for Change
College Readiness Indicators • Evidence-based Say Yes Student Management System, adaptable to local contexts, tracks a strategic set of academic, social/emotional, and health indicators, leading to: • Targeted coordination of comprehensive services and supports at the student level • Informed school- and district-level programming, combined with Say Yes’ aligned evidence-based program
