Annotation:This paper identifies and analyzes school reforms that present evidence of college preparation for all students, focusing on high school level reform efforts. The report suggests that “although high school restructuring efforts have not been designed explicitly to improve college preparation, many aspects of these efforts are congruent with the predictors of college-going and could therefore be utilized to improve access to higher education for underrepresented minority and low-income students.”
