College Promise as Case Study

The Georgetown Center on Poverty and Inequality has issued a report that includes The Long Beach College Promise as one of three case studies exemplifying “bold steps to increase educational and employment opportunity for young people.”

Elements of The Long Beach College Promise have included increased access to early childhood education; college tours for 4th and 5th graders; a middle school pledge by students and parents, committing to college readiness; a tuition-free first and second year at Long Beach City College; and guaranteed admission to Cal State Long Beach for qualifying students.
