[Discussion with Students. DePaul Breakfast, Table 2. Report to Commissioners and Staff, National Commission on Excellence in Education.]
Garibaldi, Antoine
A discussion concerning college attendance is summarized. Participants were four students and three representatives of the National Commission on Excellence in Education. The two high school seniors were asked questions that focused primarily on their assessment of their high school preparation and how they envisioned their adjustment to college life. The two college freshmen were also asked about college adjustment and their high school preparation. The students attended different high schools varying in size and academic offerings. The college freshmen indicated that their biggest adjustment was how to manage their time efficiently. Students were also asked about the quality of their high school guidance counselors. Two of the students said that the counselors spent the majority of their time handling disciplinary problems. All of the students felt that they had been well served by teachers who challenged them in their academic work. (SW)
