Bell-Ellwanger: HS Diploma, 2-Year College, Apprenticeship — Which Is the Best Path? New ‘Right to Know’ Bills in 6 States Would Give Students More Data About Options (and Outcomes)

The “one size fits all” model of education is long gone, and good riddance. No two students are on the exact same pathway through school and into the workforce, and today they have more and more opportunities to find the best choices for themselves. Whether it’s a traditional high school or a career and technical education program, whether it’s into a four-year or a community college, the military or an apprenticeship, students and families need information to make the best decisions toward their own goals.

In this analysis piece for The 74, DQC’s President and CEO Jenn Bell-Ellwanger discusses Right to Know legislation in six states and shares what state leaders will need to do to ensure that these bills truly make a difference for students.
