It’s hard enough to get high school dropouts to return to school. But how do you get them into college? And even more important, get them to complete college? The American Council on Education’s Nicole Chestang discusses a major overhaul of the General Educational Development program run by the GED Testing Service. Laurel Dukehart, president of the Gateway to College National Network, describes her organization’s work to get dropouts successfully through college. And Diego James Navarro explains how his Academy for College Excellence is getting underprepared students in and out of college.
