What Educators Should Know about College-for-All Policies
Ahearn, Caitlin; Rosenbaum, James; Rosenbaum, Janet
Phi Delta Kappan, v97 n5 p49-54 Feb 2016
This study finds that schools are poorly prepared to counsel students about community college certificate or associate degree programs. Instead the mantra of college for all continues to encourage youth to spend time and money on bachelor's degrees, for which many students are not prepared to do well. Teachers desire more information on college and career options for their low-performing and disengaged students, and the authors show that community colleges offer many college and career opportunities that can serve these students.
