This policy is rated as having a MODERATE level of implementation difficulty.
A growing number of state and local models have proliferated over the past decade. That has put competitive pressures on neighboring states and raised the awareness of the need for human capital investments, thus making the policy more appealing to policymakers. The policy does require some reforms to both post-secondary and K-12 institution practices in a given locality in addition to standing up an administrative apparatus. The ability of the policy to be implemented at local and state levels adds to its State and Local Ease of Implementation (greater number of possible policy routes).
