The Impact of Attending a Poor High School

Hi All,

Below is a link that addresses the impact of a high school education on college achievement.  The research has a great deal of relevance for those of us working in small, rural schools.

Many of our students qualify for free and reduced lunches and have challenging family contexts that impact their high school achievement.  If they receive inadequate high school preparation they have two strikes against them.

The challenge for those of us working in ASPIRE is what can we do to better prepare our students for college.
