MetadataShow full item record
Although greater numbers of students are enrolling in college today than they were 20 years ago, the rates of college enrollment for African American and Latino students remain considerably lower than those of White and Asian students. In this paper, the authors examine the predictors of college-going behavior and how they have been addressed within the school reform movement. They, then, extrapolate the promising practices from existing reform initiatives and make recommendations for the future.
