EWA Radio: Episode 42

Why do so few students from low-income families earn college degrees, even when they were academic standouts as high schoolers? And what can be done to help these students make a smoother transition to higher education?

Kavitha Cardoza tackles these questions in “Lower Income, Higher Ed”, a new documentary for WAMU Radio in Washington, D.C.

Cardoza spoke with EWA Radio about the disconnect between K-12 and higher education when it comes to expectations for college preparation, and also shared examples of innovative interventions that are boosting postsecondary success rates for low-income students.
