For over 20 years, the American Youth Policy Forum has worked to identify and synthesize research information on youth issues, and has provided forums for discussions on education and youth policy, practice, and research. Their “College and Career Readiness” topic area addresses issues of reforming middle and high schools and new strategies to ensure that high school students graduate and are prepared for postsecondary education and careers.
