New York City Goes to College: New Findings and Framework for Examining College Access and Success

New York University's Research Alliance for NYC Schools released a new report, New York City Goes to College: New Findings and Framework for Examining College Access and Success. The report follows multiple cohorts of students, beginning with those who entered 9th grade in 2003 and ending with students who began 9th grade in 2008. The authors examined up to 10 years of data for each cohort (through the 2014-15 school year) to see how rising high school graduation rates played out as students entered and progressed through college. The report provides an in-depth look at high school students’ pathways into and through college via a four-part framework - access, persistence, efficiency, and equity. It describes large improvements in college access, but also highlights persistent differences in outcomes for historically underrepresented groups of students.
