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.
College Enrollment Keeps Going Up For Minorities
The American Council on Education has released a new report on Minorities in Higher Education
. It shows progress in minority enrollment growth between 1994 and 2004- 49%! But the enrollment rate for men increased only 2% compared to 6% for women. The largest percentage increase for minorities was at private for profit institutions. Minorities earned 118% more masters degrees from 1994 to 2005. So there is some good news out there despite the persistent gap between minorities and whites/Asians in enrollment , and low college completion rates
for minorities in community colleges. This is just a sampling of findings in the report.
