Schools that serve a high percentage of minority and low-income students have succeeded in preparing students for college through a combination of rigorous courses, flexible and experienced teachers, and readily available extra help for students who need it, a report concludes.
The report was released last month by ACT Inc., the Iowa City, Iowa-based testing service best known for its college-entrance exam, and the Education Trust, a Washington-based organization that focuses on improving achievement among disadvantaged students. It examines the strategies used to help students in 10 high-performing high schools, nine of which serve a high percentage of students from minority or low-income backgrounds.
