Dual enrollment enables students to take college courses while they are still in high school, which makes it more likely that they will graduate from high school and that they will also enroll and succeed in college.
But a new report finds that while more than 51,000 high school students in California participate in dual enrollment programs, many California public high schools did not have any students concurrently enrolled in college credit courses.
How does dual enrollment work? What models are most effective at preparing students to succeed in college? How can we increase dual enrollment opportunities across the state?
