College Entrance Programs of Compensatory Education: Experience in the U.S.A.
This article summarizes an extended study carried out by Oberlin College, Ohio. Bright thirteen-year old black pupils were randomly assigned to experimental and control groups. The experimental group was given compensatory instruction until they were of college age. Comparisons with the control group showed that nearly all of these pupils -from backgrounds where completing secondary school and attending college are both unexpected - entered college.
