Finding Freedom: Facilitating Postsecondary Pathways for Undocumented Students
Trivette, Michael J.; English, David J.
Educational Policy, v31 n6 p858-894 Sep 2017
College access for undocumented students in the United States continues to be a politically contested issue in many states across the country. Whereas a growing number have created friendly admission policies, such as in-state tuition benefits, other states--like Georgia--impose restrictive guidelines that work to reduce the number of undocumented students enrolling in public higher education. Through analyzing 26 participant interviews, this study examined how Freedom University, a nonprofit organization, worked to help students further their dream of earning a college degree by creating a college-going climate and sharing social and cultural capital to educate students about their postsecondary opportunities.
