Dual Enrollment Benefits Higher Income Students

Taking courses for college credit while in high school may be a good way to get a head start on an expensive higher education — and graduate on time — but research in Illinois says it’s more available to kids in wealthier schools, who already do well academically, than it is in low-income schools. The study found that the proportion who took dual-enrollment courses ranged from zero to 88%, depending on what high school they attended. (Hechinger Report, 10/31/13). Provided By ECS
