Keeping dual credit programs from widening gaps they're meant to close

from Education Week

Allowing students to take college credits in high school can give students a year or more head start on earning a degree, but in most schools, students don't get an equal chance to participate.

Nationwide, 12 percent of white students take dual-credit courses in high school, compared to only 8 percent of Hispanic students and 7 percent of Black students, according to a new report by the Aspen Institute and Columbia University's Community College Research Center. It found only 1 in 5 school districts have been able to close race-based gaps among students participating in the dual-credit programs. Researchers developed a tool, based on common practices in the schools that have closed gaps, to help school districts and colleges improve access for students. more
