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.
National Survey Reveals Most Schools Do Not Provide Enough College Information
A new survey by the National Center For Education Statistics found that Only a third of parents thought their childs secondary school did "very well" in providing information to help with postsecondary education planning. Over a quarter of parents felt their schools provided "no information at all". The best information was provided to students in 11 or 12th grades, USA born parents, private school students ,and earned mostly A"S. So the lack of clear signals about college is still not reaching most students who attend broad access postsecondary education. See for yourself at http://nces.ed.gov/pubs2008/2008079.pdf.
