Helping Low-Income Adults Achieve College Success: Analysis of Career Pathways Program Study Participants

This blog post from the Administration for Children and Families provides an overview of the Pathways to Advancing Careers and Education study, which focuses on nine career pathways programs and looks at risk factors that prevent low-income students from achieving college success. For example, having better grades in high school predicted enrolling in college, staying in college, and earning credentials; and being able to devote time to full-time education, rather than having to work a high number of hours while enrolled in school, has at least as much influence as money on the likelihood of enrolling and persisting in college.
