Summary

A sample of 1000 black youths graduating from high schools in five cities but not attending college was selected. They were interviewed concerning their experiences, expectations, interests, motivations, and the rationale for the decision that they had already made on further education and careers. The major objectives of this study were to collect information about black youths who might be recruited into community colleges in the five cities. Another objective was to develop skills and understanding to enable the colleges to work more effectively with these youths. It was found that the students had not taken advantage of locally available college opportunities for various reasons, such as lack of or wrong information about costs, requirements, and programs; lack of confidence in their ability to do college work; and a feeling that the educational establishment, which had worked against them for so long, would also permeate the junior college. For their part, the colleges were found to be slow to interest themselves in serving ethnic minority groups, partly because of increasing demands for more and better education by the middle class white majority, and partly because of a fear that they might not succeed with blacks and other minority groups.
