Jobs for the Future produces resources and toolkits for state policymakers and local education leaders. The national nonprofit has released several briefs related to work-based learning. Below, you will find links to three documents, each with a short description. 

Work-Based Learning with Small Business (November 2018): The brief provides specific examples of how district leaders could engage the business community. The document explores the benefits of offering early postsecondary opportunities to high school students.

Work-Based Learning System Development Guide (2017): JFF produced a set of resources for districts interested in developing and implementing work-based learning strategies, including self-assessment and learning goals tools, workforce portfolios, and experiences inventory.

Not As Hard As You Think (2015): The document describes strategies for engaging high school students in work-based learning opportunities by presenting case studies from the manufacturing and healthcare sectors.

A September 2019 brief published by the American Institutes for Research ​provides three insights about the state of academic and postsecondary advisement in high schools:

  1. Counseling could increase students' understanding of postsecondary options and boost social capital that allows students to leverage advice.
  2. Effective advisement involves building trust and rapport with students, providing information and tools, and encouraging students to manage their postsecondary plans.
  3. The empirical evidence base for implementing advisement programs is lacking. The authors suggest that the evidence level for these initiatives is "promising."

​I recently came across a blog post that synthesized the evidence for social-emotional learning interventions very well. 

The post narrates how research on the benefits of SEL contributed to greater interest among educators and policymakers on how to integrate SEL and academic approaches.

Studies of interest include a 2012 meta-analysis of 75 studies and a 2015 study that estimated a 11 to 1 return on investment for six different SEL interventions.

​The 2012 research brief from the National Endowment of the Arts analyzes data from four longitudinal databases regarding the effect of arts engagement on students' future education and labor market outcomes.  

Researchers conclude that disadvantaged children and youth with high arts engagement are more likely to score better on different academic and behavioral metrics than their peers. Also, their analysis indicates that programs that engage at-risk students in the arts could narrow achievement levels between low and high-SES youth.
