Today, U.S. Senator Al Franken (D-Minn.) introduced legislation to expand access to programs that allow students to earn college credits while in high school.


Earning credits through accelerated learning programs like Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB) programs, dual enrollment programs, postsecondary enrollment options, and early college high schools can cut the cost of college by helping students earn degrees in less time, Franken said.
