The Education Design Lab this week announced a design challenge for community colleges to improve student success outcomes for learners who are single mothers by 30 percent by 2024. With financial backing from the ECMC Foundation, the nonprofit lab is calling for proposals for the two-year challenge, which will be followed by four years of evaluation. The four colleges that are selected will launch and test a "set of scalable interventions designed to dramatically increase the percentage of single mothers attaining a degree or high-quality credential," the lab said.
