US report identifies 4 barriers to program completion

November 24, 2020
A new US report focused on postsecondary completion has identified four barriers that students face on the path to completing a degree. These four broad hurdles included preparation, as many students needed to take remedial courses or learn better study skills; ease of navigating and understanding postsecondary systems; personal issues such as health, care duties, and transportation; and cost of education. The researchers examined the impact of established US programs and their effectiveness in helping students to improve, and encouraged further research into the topic on matters such as the long-term benefits of these programs and the features of each program that are most critical.
