Low-Income Students and College Attendance: An Exploration of Income Expectations-super-

Author

  • Cecilia Elena Rouse

Abstract

Some have hypothesized that unrealistic expectations regarding their futures may explain the weak link between expectations and realizations among low-income (particularly minority) youth. Unfortunately, there is little evidence characterizing students' expectations around the time that they make college decisions that would allow one to study this hypothesis.
