Notes on this Issue

Of course, college graduates don’t measure their lives’ richness solely by the names on their diplomas. Essential schools help young people, no matter where life takes them after high school, to form gratifying relationships, participate in their communities, strengthen our democracy, and bring thoughtful habits of mind into the larger world.

Horace has a new look! We hope the energy and clarity we’ve captured helps you create powerful, transformative educational experiences for all students. Thanks to all CES communities for your focus and persistence; our improvements are for you and all of the lives you grace. Thanks also to Horace readers for cool and warm feedback. We listened and acted! And thanks to longtime Horace design agency Lovejoy(creative) and CES National designer Chris Peterson Design for collaboration and inspiration.
