Achieve, an education reform organization created in 1996, has released a report on the college and career readiness (CCR) of high school graduates in all 50 U.S. states. There is a wealth of information in the report to use for grant proposal need statements and objective benchmarks and comparisons. The entire report and individual reports for each state are available for download here.

“The College and Career Readiness of U.S. High School Graduates” report includes data by state on the percentage of 9th grade cohorts meeting state CCR benchmarks, completing CCR courses of study, accumulating credits towards graduation, and earning college credit through Advanced Placement exams. The data is aggregated by subgroup when available.

The individual state reports includes information about the job market in the state, preparedness for the military, postsecondary remediation, and performance indicators for 4th and 8th grade students.
