"Potholes" Study Coming Out Today

From the Consortium: "This is to alert you to a press conference scheduled for

Wednesday, March 12, at 1 p.m. at Roosevelt High, 3436 W. Wilson, Chicago. The findings of a new postsecondary report--“From High School to the Future: Potholes on the

Road to College”--will be discussed by researchers at the

Consortium on Chicago School Research at the University of Chicago, along with

CPS students, administrators and a high school college coach.

"This report reveals that a majority of Chicago Public

Schools graduates—even those with top grades and test scores--do not

successfully navigate the daunting process of enrolling in four-year colleges

and too often default to schools for which they are overqualified. Latino

students are most at risk of not enrolling in college. Many students are

derailed by complex federal financial aid requirements."
