Exploring the Impacts of School Reforms on Underrepresented Urban Students' College Persistence
Yavuz, Olcay
Educational Research and Evaluation, v22 n7-8 p354-373 2016
This longitudinal quantitative study investigates how participation in the Comprehensive College Readiness Access and Success Program (CCRASP) affects underrepresented urban students' college persistence. Results revealed that CCRASP participation was associated with higher percentages of students enrolling in both 2- and 4-year colleges as sophomore students. As school leaders and policy makers seek to make all urban students college and career ready, these findings further solidify current urgencies to re-visit K-12 student academic and counselling services. It also provides school leaders and educators with practical information and reform ideas to improve underprivileged students' persistence and success.
