Readiness Traps & Gaps

April 1, 2015

Readiness Traps are serious, often unintended, traps in systems and settings that affect some young people disproportionately, narrowing or cutting off their paths forward. The most common traps occur when age, time, completion and access are used as proxies for young people’s readiness or system performance. Readiness traps create and fuel readiness gaps.

Readiness Gaps are deep and persistent gaps among young people, as well as gaps between the abilities youth have and those they need for life demands and responsibilities—in school, college, work and life.

Across the country, policymakers and practitioners, researchers and writers, are naming and addressing these traps. Their strategies and solutions, although thoughtful, are often insufficient.
