Educational Success

The Problem

Working women, especially low earners, face big challenges getting into and staying in school. Finances, work schedules, family responsibilities, and poor educational preparation all play a part. Too often, public policies and educational institutions don’t respond effectively to these barriers or provide quality programs that lead to good jobs.
