K-12 learning setbacks may pose challenges for colleges

Key Takeaways:

  • Universities are encouraged to take proactive measures to address potential challenges in enrollment stemming from learning gaps among K-12 students due to the pandemic, which could manifest as a decrease in high school graduates and a decrease in preparedness among graduates, as per recent guidance from the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education.
  • Being informed about potential issues is crucial, according to WICHE. Universities can review local school district assessments and pinpoint challenges in preparedness that affect students from middle school onward.
  • The organization, which monitors K-12 enrollment data, also suggested that higher education leaders offer tutoring assistance to K-12 schools and districts to enhance students’ readiness for college.
