Dual Enrollment Infographics

How does dual enrollment pave a smoother path to college for Black and Latinx Students in California?

The dual enrollment infographics provide an overview of some of the roadblocks Black and Latinx students face on the path to and through a college degree, with a lens on how Black and Latinx students stand to benefit from these courses. School, district, and college leaders can pave a smoother path for students who stand to benefit most through intentional, equity-driven practices in dual enrollment implementation. These infographics are meant to be used as a tool to better understand racial inequities in dual enrollment access and participation.
