In Retrospect: What College Undergraduates Say about Their High School Education
Thompson, Gail L.; Joshua-Shearer, Marilyn
High School Journal, v85 n4 p1-15 Apr-May 2002
This article presents the results of a study in which university students were questioned about their high school experiences. Major findings include (1) There is a great need to improve the quality of instruction that students receive in math, science, critical thinking, and study skills; (2) Hispanic and African American students believe that there is a need for greater access to college preparatory courses; and (3) Race/ethnicity and culture have a great impact on students' schooling experiences and the value that they place on different aspects of their schooling. Implications for educators and policy makers are discussed. (Contains 11 tables.)
