Source:http://www.tc.columbia.edu/ccrc/PAPERS/dualcred...
Date:2002
Organization:Teachers College, Columbia University
Short Description:Examines the multiple benefits of dual enrollment in high school and college courses during high school.
Annotation:Dual enrollment has the potential to shift from a program focused on a relatively small number of higher achieving students, to a much larger strategy, with the intent to facilitate the high school-to-college transition for a wider range of students. Analysis indicates that dual enrollment may improve college preparation, motivate students to take more rigorous high school classes, and may shift the focus of occupational education to postsecondary institutions.
