Dual Enrollment Is Exploding. How Can Colleges Make Sure It’s Equitable?
Charlotte Matherly, The Chronicle of Higher Education
Dual enrollment has long functioned as a “program of privilege." The system that allows students to knock out high school and college courses at once, at little-to-no cost, often favors white people, native English speakers, and those of a higher socioeconomic standing.
As participation in dual enrollment skyrockets, two researchers say it’s time for that to change. In their new report, John Fink and Davis Jenkins present a framework aimed at ensuring that all students can take advantage of such programs. The goal is to get more students on a college track early, saving them time and money en route to a degree.
