Striving for College: A Case Study of Urban African American and Latino High School Males in College Prep Programs

Noel Scott Anderson.


To create greater equity and educational opportunity, millions of federal, state and private dollars have been allocated to develop college-preparation programs at the secondary level. Despite this growth, over two thirds of students do not complete the programs, with the largest group being students of color in urban areas.
