Filling in this perception gap can help low-income students succeed
segment on LaGuardia
helps us all better understand what it means to be a college student in America. The story follows up on
LaGuardia President Gail O. Mellow’s Op-Ed
New York Times
to correct misperceptions of today’s college student. The reality is sobering. Community college students struggle to raise families, work and attend college. Despite enormous obstacles, they persist, determined to make a better life for themselves and their families.
LaGuardia’s work is impressive. A
Stanford University study ranked LaGuardia 5th
in the nation in creating economic mobility for low-income students. Changing society’s perception of who attends college is an essential step to leveling the playing field so that every hard working student has a shot at achieving their dreams.
