Summary "Minding the gap argues that in today's highly competitive, global economy, all young people need a postsecondary education. Yet only one in ten students from the lowest economic quintile in the United States currently earns a postsecondary credential. This timely and instructive book explores policies and practices that would quickly enable a larger number of low-income and first-generation college students to earn postsecondary degrees. In doing so, Minding the gap calls for a system that thoroughly integrates secondary and postsecondary education -- a system in which a college degree is the goal for all students." -- P. [4] of cover
