Obama Announces Programs to Prepare Students for College

President Obama today announced a $100-million investment in a program designed to prepare more students to attend and complete college, including money for early-college high schools that grant high-school and associate degrees simultaneously, and for dual-enrollment programs that allow students to earn college credit while still in high school. The money was proposed for the College Pathways Program in Mr. Obama’s budget for the 2011 fiscal year. At an event hosted by the America’s Promise Alliance, Mr. Obama said his administration would also soon announce programs to help students and families complete and submit Fafsa forms.
