Conley’s (2010) research for the book College and Career Ready included site visits to dozens of schools across the country that were preparing large numbers of students for college. Eight schools are highlighted in the book. The entire group of 38 schools is profiled in Creating College Readiness: Profiles of 38 Schools That Know How(EPIC, 2009). Choose one of the 38 schools and analyze why Conley chose the school for inclusion in his work.
- Explain in 4-5 well-written paragraphs how your selected school addresses the four keys of college readiness.
- What barriers did the school face and how are they addressed?
- Are there examples of college readiness presented in the profile for your local school? Explain.
