Youth Perspectives on Postsecondary Opportunity & Participation

Three sets of case studies examine the ways low-income youth make meaning of their educational experiences to and through postsecondary education. Individually, the case studies aim to provide rich details of low-income students at specific trajectories and sectors of postsecondary participation. Taken together, they provide a holistic portrait of how youth negotiate their daily lives with college participation.
