The Hunt Institute Releases Series on Equity and Post-High School Education
February 9, 2022
Cary, NC- Based on the success of its Attainment For All policy briefs, The Hunt Institute has authored a follow-up series of policy briefs focused on the intersection of equity and postsecondary education achievement. The first policy brief has been issued, and two more briefs will be issued over the course of the next four months.
The first brief explores the idea of embedding equity across the education continuum, and it includes examples of states’ work to ensure equity within the education spectrum. The second brief will examine wraparound student support services and their role in providing an equitable postsecondary experience. The series will conclude with a third brief examining the use of disaggregated data to narrow equity gaps in postsecondary education.
“Our higher education team has done an outstanding job of mapping out the systems that lead into postsecondary education,” said Dr. Javaid Siddiqi, President and CEO of The Hunt Institute. “Achieving success in postsecondary education does not begin when high school ends- it begins with prenatal healthcare and high-quality preschool and it continues through the entire k-12 system,” he added.
The Hunt Institute is grateful for the insight and guidance that our education policy partners provided, including the Institute for Higher Education Policy (IHEP), the National Student Clearinghouse, and Education Commission of the States. Additionally, The Hunt Institute extends its gratitude to the John M. Belk Endowment, The Kresge Foundation, and Lumina Foundation for their support of this policy brief series.
