Suspended at the height of the pandemic, placement testing is back on the table as an option for determining eligibility for dual enrollment—what should states and colleges do? CCRC researchers John Fink, Sarah Griffin, and Maggie Fay share their recommendations in this blog post.
CCRC researchers describe an emerging approach to dual enrollment called dual enrollment equity pathways, or DEEP, in which community colleges partner with middle and high schools to motivate and prepare underserved students to pursue college pathways in fields of interest.
In this op-ed, John Fink and Davis Jenkins argue that dual enrollment programs—which are mired by inequities—should be reconceived to expand college access and offer underserved students an on-ramp to postsecondary education.
This post presents a set of interactive data tools and findings from a CCRC analysis examining racial equity gaps in access to AP and dual enrollment coursework among public high school students during the 2017–18 school year.
