Although the importance of advanced study courses is growing, the NRC committee has identified a troublesome gap in access, particularly in inner-city and rural schools.
While advanced study opportunities need to be equally accessible to every student, the availability of AP classes decreases as the percentage of underrepresented minority or low-income students increases, especially for math and science.
NRC recommends that the primary goal of advanced study in any discipline should be for students "to achieve a deep conceptual understanding of its content and unifying concepts." In other words, they should emphasize depth rather than breadth of coverage.
Study of School-To-Work Initiatives (3532 words)
High school graduation is no longer the goal towards which all activity in the school points; staff members are creating new articulation arrangements with postsecondary institutions, and helping their students plan their futures with the years after high school graduation in view.
The study's findings underscore a number of areas in which further research is needed in order to further clarify its impact of school-to-work reform on students, the impact on employers, the relative effectiveness of various reform strategies, the development of systems for school-to-work, and the implications for financing school-to-work systems.
While this study of school-to-work reform focused on programs that serve students who are entering the world of work after high school, the findings have important implications for those at the state and local level with the responsibility for school-to-work opportunities for all students under the act.
