Report on “Linked Learning” Offers Suggestions to Policymakers


At a time when the Obama administration is pushing states to adopt policies to ensure that all students are college and career ready, the idea of "Linked Learning" holds enormous promise. Linking Learning to the 21st Century: Preparing All Students for College, Career, and Civic Participation, a research-based strategy for maintaining college as a universal option by using a Linked Learning approach to relate academic work to the diverse interests of students, including direct connection to particular industries and careers, was re-released by the National Education Policy Center (NEPC).

The Linking Learning brief warns that proper program design is essential. The first half of the brief details the key elements of well-designed Linked Learning programs. The second half provides model statutory language that illustrates how such well-designed programs can be supported by legislative enactments.
