Increasing numbers of students expect to attend college after high school (U.S. Department of Education 2006). This set of Issue Tables, the second in a series examining students' preparation for college, draws on data from the Education Longitudinal Study of 2002 (ELS:02) to highlight postsecondary expectations and plans among the senior class of 2003-04. The following provides a summary of this set of Issue Tables: Tables 1 and 2 examine the highest level of education that students expected to attain and that parents expected students to attain. Tables 3 to 5 examine students' postsecondary plans. Table 6 looks at the opinions of students' parents, school staff, and friends about going to college after high school; table 7 shows how frequently students discussed going to college with their parents; and table 8 presents the number of students' friends planning to attend a 2- or 4-year college after high school. Estimates in all tables are shown for all students and by a wide range of student, family, and high school characteristics. A glossary is included. (Contains 8 tables and 2 footnotes.)
