My blog discusses the important and complex subjects of college completion, college success, student risk factors (for failing), college readiness, and academic preparation. I will explore the pieces of the college puzzle that heavily influence, if not determine, college success rates.
Doubling Numbers of Low Income Students Who Complete College
This is a follow up to my last blog concerning a paper by Susan Goldberger in Minding The Gap just published by Harvard Education Press. She estimates that increasing college readiness levels of low income high school graduates could increase college graduates by 53,700 students. She also provides estimates for increasing college completion rates
of GED holders, high school dropouts, and other low income target groups. The rest of the articles in the book provide many perspectives on specific policy and practice interventions for meeting her college completion targets.
