Advancing College Opportunity: An Impact Evaluation of the Growth of Dual Credit in Stark and Wayne Counties, Ohio
Rochford, Joseph A.; O'Neill, Adrienne; Gelb, Adele
Stark Education Partnership
This impact evaluation looks at three years of growth for "high school-based dual credit" courses exclusive of Canton's Early College High School in Stark and Wayne Counties. As "high school based dual credit" is increasingly implemented in low wealth and urban districts, accompanied by an increase in high school teachers qualified as college adjuncts, the chances are increased that "high school based dual credit" is operating as a disruptive innovation, prompting the counties to move towards an equitable, as well as an equal, college access strategy. The findings support the growing efficacy of "high school based dual credit" in advancing college opportunity for all students. This evaluation contains a separate section calling for future research and study on the impact of "high school based dual credit" as an equitable college access strategy. Teacher responses are appended. (Contains 51 footnotes.)
