Students, educators, researchers, and policy experts convened at the restaurant Busboys & Poet’s located in Washington, DC’s for a town hall forum on higher education and to highlight the findings of the recent Washington Bureau report “From Access to Completion: A Seamless Path to College Graduation for African American Students." “Mama I Made It,” the title of the evening’s program, is a play on the popular phrase often used by low-income underserved young men and women in social media to highlight the milestone of college graduation.
The town hall featured a student panel featuring both high school students and college graduates and was followed by panel featuring policy experts in the higher education space The program ended with a special a presentation by the Department of Education, on financial aid.
The student panel was moderated by Juana Summers an education reporter with NPR. The panelists, Deon Jones, 2014 graduate of American University, Valencia White, who graduated from Alabama A&M University in 2013, Mahni Hellams of Eastern Senior High School, and Kaija Pack of Benjamin E. Mays High School—both high school seniors-- discussed the issues the face in navigating the college admissions process and what supports might make the process smoother for those going through it today.
Any serious discussion about the creation of jobs and economic opportunity must account for the basic shortcomings of our current national approach to education, from early education to adulthood, and beyond. These two concepts are closely rooted in their ultimate purpose, if not one and the same. Education, at its core, is economic readiness. Job training, by its very definition, is education in its most practical sense. The two cannot and must not be viewed separately. A broken national system of education will continue to yield a broken economy, built upon broken communities and broken lives.
This list of practical and actionable ideas is a recommended approach to solving America’s crisis in education - one designed to spark serious discussion, while also serving as a policy playbook ready for action today. We view the following collection of ideas as the first step towards positive change, and a long-term education solution for America.
