High Schools Helping Economically Disadvantaged Students Get to College

Event Details

Friday, November 17, 2017
12-1:30 p.m.
Wisconsin Idea Room, Education Building
How large are economic disparities in college attendance, and are some high schools better equipped at sending low-income students to college? If so, what ​high school characteristics can help ​explain the variation in college-going outcomes for these students? At this WISCAPE event, Noah Hirschl, Christian Smith, and Eric Grodsky will present their ongoing research addressing these questions. Cosponsored by the Interdisciplinary Training Program in Education Sciences.
