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."
