IN HECHINGER REPORT OP-ED, SAY YES PRESIDENT CALLS ON FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO EMPOWER COMMUNITIES TO HELP STUDENTS SUCCEED

In an essay published today on the pinion page of The Hechinger Report, Say Yes to Education President Mary Anne Schmitt-Carey and Christopher T. Cross, a former U.S. Assistant Secretary of Education, call on the Trump Administration and Congress to consider policy changes that will “enable communities to improve their students’ chances of achieving a college degree or career credential.”

“Experience and data,’’ they write, “make clear that their success aligns with the quality of preparation and consistency of support they received in the prior 13 years.” They add: “Government at all levels needs to commit to bulldoze the barriers that have long prevented one local agency from working with another, or local government from working hand-in-hand with the private sector.”
