1. Roberts, Jennifer Kessa. Alignment of Ohio's College Credit Plus Policy with Barriers to and Supports for College Enrollment of High School Students in High-Poverty Rural Areas.

Degree: PhD, Educational Studies, 2019, The Ohio State University

Rural students represent nearly one-quarter of the students educated by our nation's public education system, yet they are often underrepresented in educational policy research. Rural students are also underrepresented in the existing literature on postsecondary decision-making. This study aims to address these gaps in the literature by assessing how well Ohio's College Credit Plus (CCP) policy addresses the barriers to and supports for college enrollment of high school students in high-poverty rural areas. Findings from this research demonstrate the ways in which CCP's goals of increasing equity and efficiency compete with one another, the importance of considering context for policy implementation, and how the policy's unintended consequences create barriers for students in this study. Additionally, findings from this study provide insight to how these students' families, schools, and communities serve as supports for and barriers to their decision to attend college and for their execution of that decision. Findings from the research are used to recommend changes to Ohio's College Credit Plus policy that would better address rural students' supports and barriers to college enrollment and to encourage areas of future research to examine questions that remain unanswered. Advisors/Committee Members: Allen, Ann (Advisor).
