Community colleges, which can lead students to job opportunities and well-paying careers, are one of the main entry points to higher education for student-parents. This study from the Community College Review examines student-parents’ college and career trajectories, as well as the challenges they may face in reaching their goals.
The study asks three questions:
- How do student parents of color navigate community college?
- How do student parents of color make educational and career decisions?
- What, if any, institutional resources do student parents of color utilize to learn about career planning and workforce transition resources at their campus?
