High School Teaching for the Twenty-first Century: Preparing Students for College (PDF; 127 KB)
Source: Alliance for Excellent Education
From press release:

High school teaching must focus on college-ready skills if students are to be truly prepared for the challenges of the twenty-first century, according to a new brief from the Alliance for Excellent Education.

High School Teaching for the Twenty-first Century: Preparing Students for College, made possible by a generous grant from MetLife Foundation, suggests that meaningful high school reform hinges on teaching that is cognizant of and aligned to the expectations of colleges and employers. It recommends that efforts underway in some states and districts to raise high school standards and increase course requirements for graduation should be expanded, and that those efforts should be coupled with a systemic push to increase the rigor of instruction so that high school teaching is fully aligned with college expectations.
