New US report on low-income, first-generation applicants

December 12, 2007

Low-income and first-generation students can have a hard time finding "reliable" information when considering PSE. First-generation learners tend not to think seriously about PSE until the last two years of high school, which critics say is too late.  A new report by the National Center for Education Statistics calls for more classroom career talks by local professionals at the elementary level.  The report also reminds schools not to assume all potential students have Internet access, and to include clear bottom line pricing, including books, board and fees.
