Oh the things you can think! Serious. A little effort takes to a long way!
Nearly all high school seniors believe that they are going to college and bad grade won’t stop them. Have you listened to the “future plans” of graduates read as they walk across the stage at graduation? Okay. A large majority are heading to a community college because open admissions is a “thing.” But are they successful? Do they complete college?
This subject has been on my mind for quit some time.
It is my observation that students who perform poorly in high school most likely will not graduate from college, may even not go beyond remedial course. Did we really serve them well? I believe there is a close connection between high school preparation (difficulty of classes offered and grades) and college completion. I am not alone. It would appear that researcher are seeing similar trends.
