This section presents key indicators of children's learning and progress from early childhood through postsecondary school entry, including family reading to young children, mathematics and reading achievement, and advanced coursetaking. Indicators on high school completion, college enrollment, and youth neither enrolled nor working indicate the level to which youth are prepared for further education or the workforce, or are at risk for limiting their future prospects. Selected indicators also feature international comparisons.
