Exploring Barriers to Higher Education Faced by CalWorks Student-Parents
The Public Policy Institute of California reported that a small share (5%) of CalWORKs community college recipients transferred to a four-year college. Over the summer, I’ll be conducting a literature review on the topic surrounding Student-Parent CalWORKs recipients navigating higher education to further investigate potential barriers CalWORKs student-parents face during their academic trajectory. I’ll be building qualitative data analytical skills via MAXQDA and will also be collecting administrative data related to CalWORKs student-parents.
