To the Editor:

In my July 13, 2005, Commentary (“Dual Enrollment: Spanning the Border Between High School and College—And Reshaping the Landscape of Public Education”), credit should have been given to the Community College Research Center as an important resource. The center’s 2004 report “State Dual Enrollment Policies: Addressing Access and Quality,” funded by the U.S. Department of Education’s office of vocational and adult education, provided a wealth of information and recommendations on dual-enrollment policies and practices.

The center is devoted to conducting research on community colleges and higher education, and to the development of practice and policy that expand access to higher education and ensure success for all students. It recently completed a national study of dual enrollment and other credit-based transition programs, also funded by the vocational and adult education office. Information on the Accelerating Student Success Through Credit-Based Transition Programs project is available online. A final report on this study will be released by the federal office this fall.
