Dual enrollment: minority groups remained significantly underrepresented
This study investigated the dual enrollment outcomes associated with a 2005 policy change intended to expand dual enrollment participation in Virginia.
Results indicated that overall access to and participation in dual enrollment courses increased following the policy change. However, data showed this increase was not uniform, and minority groups remained significantly underrepresented when compared with their representation in the general student populatio
A similar percentage of students enrolled in higher education before and after the policy change, but students after the policy change enrolled in 4-year institutions sooner after high school graduation than students in the cohort prior to the change.
