California's Junior Year College Assessment

The National Governor's Conference wants to hear from the California State University system about its groundbreaking Early Assessment Program (EAP) for high school juniors. Designed to better prepare students for the rigors of college, the EAP allows high school juniors to test their English and math skills according to California State University standards — giving them the opportunity to catch up, if necessary, during their senior year. California State University Chancellor Charles Reed explains the program to NPR's Tony Cox.
