The Forgotten Majority.
Bushweller, Kevin
American School Board Journal, v185 n3 p16-21 Mar 1998
A program dubbed AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) has spread to nearly 600 schools across the country. Its primary mission is to help average achievers do well enough in high school to be accepted into college. A 1994 study found that 94 percent of AVID graduates enrolled in 2-year or 4-year colleges. Sidebars recount the experiences of three successful AVID graduates. (MLF)
