Title:Early intervention programs: Opening the doors to higher education
Organization:ERIC Clearinghouse on Higher Education
Short Description:This report addresses issues related to the increasing growth of early intervention programs to encourage high school graduation and college attendance among students from low-income and minority groups.
Annotation:This report addresses issues related to the increasing growth of early intervention programs to encourage high school graduation and college attendance among students from low-income and minority groups. It first presents a brief review of the societal goals of equality for the nation's education system, and then defines the programs "early intervention" and "academic outreach" and synthesizes the demographic and educational problems and challenges related to development of such programs. An overview of the burgeoning field of school-college collaborative efforts for early intervention and academic outreach is provided, followed by a survey of federal and state efforts.
