Hanover Research – Preventing Student Dropout Toolkit
In this publication, Hanover Research addresses how institutions can take the initiative in helping address common areas that lead students to drop out by addressing how to best support students in the classroom, provide adequate financial assistance, and emotionally engage students. The toolkit provides solutions to address three areas of student support: academic, financial and student engagement. Although this toolkit addresses solutions for colleges – the strategies can be adopted in adult education.
PPIC – Improving College Readiness through Dual Enrollment
In the latest PPIC article, the need for dual enrollment to target underserved communities is addressed. PPIC demonstrates how awareness of dual enrollment was growing prior to the pandemic and how it is an important strategy for expanding educational opportunities and improving student outcomes in this pandemic-induced recession.
