Former First Lady, Michelle Obama believes that every individual should have some type of postsecondary education or training beyond high school to achieve economic and personal success (Reach Higher Initiative, Better Make Room, 2019). Educational attainment (e.g., a high school diploma, college degree, or postsecondary training) provides career opportunities for advancement into leadership positions and benefits such as health insurance and retirement (Heckman, 2000). Additionally, an individual with a college degree can make over one million dollars more over a lifetime in salary than someone with a high school diploma (Carnevale, Cheah, & Hanson, 2015). Acquiring a college degree can lead to employment opportunities and is considered an asset in the U.S. economy (Washington, 2010). However, certain populations encounter barriers to attaining an education, particularly a postsecondary education, leading to a disparity in receiving the aforementioned benefits. Some of these populations include African American students, LGBTQ students, and students with disabilities. There is a dearth of information and research on providing guidance on implementation, research, and best practices in equity-based career development, college readiness, and successful postsecondary transitions for minoritized, at risk, or vulnerable populations. The editors of this volume invited authors with research and practice expertise around various student populations in preparing them for college and career readiness as well as postsecondary transitions. This book is the first of its kind to discuss career development and postsecondary transitions from an access and equity perspective. Further, this text serves as a call to action to ensure the United States’ most vulnerable populations has an opportunity to successfully transition into multiple postsecondary options after high school.

Multi-Tiered Systems of Support: A Practical Guide to Preventative Practice, by Gary Schaffer, makes it easy to decipher this important framework for delivering evidence-based interventions to improve students’ learning, behavior, and social-emotional outcomes. This text focuses on the common elements of the intervention service delivery models comprising Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) to offer step-by-step guidance for each stage of the process. Covering MTSS from a "whole child" perspective, Multi-Tiered Systems of Support empowers current and future educators to set up learners for the greatest success in school and beyond. This book simplifies the MTSS model using an overall analogy of the four basic steps to building a house. We start with the foundation as the history of MTSS, the walls as the four main intervention service delivery models, the framework as common components that link all delivery models, and then the roof that represents MTSS as a whole. Diagrams, checklists and flowcharts accompany each step of the MTSS model to organize and summarize the information on each model. Case studies offer practical, in-depth examples of implementation strategies across models within MTSS. Unique sections on data-based decision making and infusing culturally responsive practices into RTI, SWPBS, Social-Emotional RTI, and Suicide Prevention and Intervention offer readers ways to better adapt and refine their implementation of MTSS. Through this text, readers will have a convenient resource that will save them time locating information on interventions, measures of universal screening, and progress monitoring unique to each intervention service delivery model within MTSS.
