Dual enrollment is a powerful tool for equity.

With support from the College Futures Foundation, and in collaboration with JFF, Career Ladders Project researched the landscape for dual enrollment in California. We produced recommendations for how to help more colleges, K-12 districts, and students across California reap the clear benefits of dual enrollment.
