Краткое описание

Despite progress in increasing the representation of minorities in science and mathematics education, the pattern of underrepresentation continues at higher educational levels and in the scientific, engineering, and medical workforce. At the pre-college level, minority students, particularly those who live in urban areas, often do not have access to high-quality educational opportunities that would support their participation in these fields. This study sought to determine whether providing such opportunities, in this case through the Gateway to Higher Education program, made a difference. The research examined longitudinal data collected on all Gateway participants, compared a cohort of Gateway students to a retrospective comparison group, and conducted site visits, focus groups, and interviews. The findings revealed significant differences in high school graduation rates, completion of academic high school courses with an emphasis on mathematics and science courses, strong Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) performance, and college attendance. The study has important implications for educational reform.
