National Progress Report on Education

Early in his presidency, Obama announced that he wanted to put the country back on track for being a world leader in educational attainment. In response, the College Board formed the Commission on Access, Admissions and Success in Higher Education, which studies the pipeline from preschool through college. The group’s goal is to identify ways in which American schools can increase college completion rates.
