College preparatory initiatives such as Way2go Maryland, led by the University System of Maryland, have proven promising. So, too, have programs run by such private organizations as the CollegeBound Foundation in Baltimore and CollegeTracks in Montgomery County. However, adequate funding continues to be a challenge, and much work remains in educating students about their options. Higher education must continue to partner with school systems to prepare more students for college. At stake isn't just a clearer path to financial stability, but the path to limitless possibilities.
