Education and Work After High School: Central Texas Outcomes through Dec. 2008

Education and Work After High School: Central Texas Outcomes through December 2008 (September 2009)

Authors: Greg Cumpton, Deanna Schexnayder, Christopher T. King

Publication Type: Report
The Central Texas Student Futures Project is a research partnership of the Ray Marshall Center and ten Central Texas independent school districts (ISDs). The project follows the progress of Central Texas high school graduates as they make the critical transition from high school to postsecondary education and the labor market. This effort grew out of concerns among key education, business, workforce development and community stakeholders that the region’s economy and its residents would not prosper in the near- and longer-term unless more of its graduates obtained higher levels of enrollment in postsecondary education and better labor market outcomes. Graduates' actual postsecondary education and work outcomes are computed annually (for at least four years beyond graduation) using postsecondary enrollment and employment records. Findings are shared annually with local educators, business and community leaders, and policymakers committed to improving education and supporting local initiatives.
