Dual enrolment a "promising intervention" for students who might not attend college

July 20, 2012

According to a new report, California students who took community-college classes while still in secondary school were more likely than their classmates to graduate and attend a 4-year college, even among students who are historically underrepresented in PSE. The Community College Research Center at Columbia University's Teachers College studied a 3-year dual enrolment program created for low-income students, English learners, students who struggle academically, and students at high risk of dropping out of PSE. Researchers found that the students stayed in college and earned more credits than did similar students in their district who did not partake in the program. EdSource Today | Report
