Alliance for Achievement


A major demonstration funded by the Pew Foundation, Bell South Foundation, and DeWitt Wallace Foundation to raise educational achievement, especially for low-income and minority students, in five Southern communities by forging partnerships among middle schools, high schools, and community colleges. Prepared for the initiative, the MDC report, Walking the Talk, synthesized strategies for raising student aspirations and offered case illustrations of how to help middle and high school students recognize that postsecondary education is a necessary, affordable, and accessible option.
