The Reporter Editorial: Early College High School will help launch Vacaville students

Here’s some welcome news on the education front: This coming August, as many as 60 freshmen could be enrolled in a new Vacaville school that would allow them to earn both a high school diploma and up to 60 college credits by the time they graduate in 2017.

The proposed Early College High School is a joint effort between Solano Community College and Vacaville Unified School districts. Like similar programs around the nation, it would primarily target students who too often face barriers to earning a college degree, such poverty, language acquisition and the lack of college-educated role models within their families.

While the governing boards of both districts still must sign off on the plan, it isn’t expected to meet strenuous objection.
