Rationale for Expanding DE

College Enrollment and Graduation Rates

C.

Rationale for Expanding DE
(continued)

Lack of financial and social support is the major reason
students leave school without completing a degree.


1.
Most students leave college because they are working to support
themselves and going to school at the same time.


2.
Young people who fail to finish college are often going it alone
financially.


3.
Among students who don’t graduate, the college selection
process is far more limited and often seems happenstance and
uninformed.

4.
Students who leave college realize that a diploma is an asset,
but they may not fully recognize the impact dropping out of
school will have on their future.




C.

Rationale for Expanding DE

(continued)

Of the Virginia CTE completers who graduated in 2010, over
4,500 had taken dual enrollment courses, giving them a distinct
advantage in completing an associate's degree.



Dual enrollment is increasing in high schools across the state,
and when the CTE completer data are released later this fall, it
is expected that this number will rise.

important pedagogical skills for high school students.
