Investing in Early College
Our Most Promising Pathway
This report begins by revisiting projections indicating Massachusetts will end the next decade with fewer college-educated workers. We then present compelling evidence that Early College is a cost-effective response to this challenge and describe nascent efforts to grow Early Colleges throughout the state. As leaders on Beacon Hill work to update education funding formulas, this report demonstrates the need for sustainable mechanisms to scale Early Colleges, which span across our traditional K-12 and higher education systems.
