Newark–City of Learning: An Assessment of Postsecondary Attainment Data
Prepared by the Cornwall Center for Metropolitan Studies
In collaboration with:
The Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy
and Newark City of Learning Collaborative
The Cornwall Center, in conjunction with the NCLC, asked the Bloustein Practicum team to research four aspects of postsecondary readiness and success programming in Newark and nationwide. The four components of our project were 1) an analysis of postsecondary readiness and attainment data in Newark, 2)an inventory scan and analysis of current college readiness programs in Newark, 3) analysis of two college readiness programs that existed in Newark in the recent past, and 4) case studies of Promise programs in other cities. The purpose of this project was to create a data platform from which the Collaborative could create policies, goals, and benchmarks to increase postsecondary attainment among Newark residents.
