What Percentage of Graduates are Actually Going to College?

Hi All

Below is an interesting study that is relevant to ASPIRE.  Here is the research question:

The first outcome of interest for high schools is: “what percent of our graduates are going to college?”

**Be sure to read the third paragraph in the report that indicates that families are the major source of college knowledge of college choice.  Since many students are first generation their parents often have insufficient knowledge.  ASPIRE mentors can have a real impact.

In the study you see the impact of SES on progression to college.
