A review of college readiness initiatives for high school students

August 9, 2018

Although colleges and high schools have taken positive steps toward preparing students for postsecondary, a considerable number of high school seniors are still underprepared for college, write Elisabeth Barnett, Jennifer Zinth, and John Squires. The authors then consider how dual enrolment and readiness courses in the US can help high school students who are at different stages of preparedness for postsecondary. According to the authors, readiness courses help students graduate with basic competencies required for college. The authors highlight how dual enrolment offerings have been expanded to accommodate low-income students, students of colour, and first-generation students. Inside Higher Ed
