    The assumption that the UC isn’t affordable for low-income rural students is ill-informed and must be corrected! It is the least expensive option for students whose families make less than $80,000 per year due to the generous Blue & Gold Opportunity Scholarship.

    This is very interesting but does not take into consideration that UC and CSU have become unaffordable for many. Students in our lower income rural district chose to attend community college instead. We need to take a hard look at why UC and CSU have become so expensive.

    I see some folks have already informed you福彩app是正规的吗 of some inaccuracies … I believe I found the error …

    Your data sources are accurate, however, you福彩app是正规的吗 used enrollment data for Fall of 2018 for UC and Fall 2019 for CSU. It is, therefore, inaccurate for both the number you福彩app是正规的吗r interactive map shows as enrolled and the percentage. I also would like to know where you福彩app是正规的吗 identified the size of graduating class in order to represent the percentages enrolled?

    Some high schools seem to be missing.

      That may be, unfortunately. We only included the schools referenced in either the UC or CSU enrollment origin data and they don’t explain exactly which they exclude or why. Assuming the data from the colleges is correct, though, it’s a safe assumption any high school not included is a 0; if you福彩app是正规的吗 don’t assume the colleges are correct it’s anyone’s guess.

    What is the data source for this? I looked up my local high school and I know that the result is incorrect, to the point that the dot color is wrong. Also, since it excludes other 4 year colleges, it's worth a pass to consider if that changes the impression somewhat, especially for very small high schools. IME sometimes the more ambitious rural kids find it attractive to go to rural out of state schools. That said, … Read More

    What is the data source for this? I looked up my local high school and I know that the result is incorrect, to the point that the dot color is wrong.

    Also, since it excludes other 4 year colleges, it’s worth a pass to consider if that changes the impression somewhat, especially for very small high schools. IME sometimes the more ambitious rural kids find it attractive to go to rural out of state schools.

    That said, I think this is a very useful chart and I think the overall message is correct: rural kids are much less likely to go to universities and a lot of that has to do with various elements tying them to their 福彩app是正规的吗 towns, regardless of academic preparation. It helps to have programs to take the kids out visiting and to give them a chance to see what life is like outside of their 福彩app是正规的吗 town, and to bring in as many opportunities as possible.

      It’s not so much that other four year colleges are excluded as they aren’t included because we don’t have the data. The primary sources are…

      UC:
      CSU:

      It’s also for students that enrolled, not who applied or were accepted.
