Preparando estudiantes para el siglo 21

The goal of “College for All”—the notion that every student should engage in some form of postsecondary education—was hotly debated this week, from a forum sponsored by Education Week to the pages of The New Yorker. Individuals on both sides of the controversy make cogent points, in my view, but I think there is more reason to be troubled by the push-back against, than by the aspiration behind, College for All.

President Obama has strongly supported the idea that all Americans should obtain at least one year of postsecondary training or education. Major resistance was voiced in February when a highly respected group of leaders at the Harvard Graduate School of Education published a report entitled, “Pathways to Prosperity.”

Pathways to Prosperity es una contribución de la escuela graduada de la facultad de Educación de la Universidad de Harvard.
