Webinar- “Diverted Lives: The impact of adversity and poverty on transition to post-secondary education”

In cooperation with the Washington State Office of Financial Management’s Education Research and Data Center, Washington State University’s Child and Family Research Unit has completed an analysis of community, school, and individual student characteristics that predict differences in high school graduates transition to post-secondary education.

Presented by Dr. Christopher Blodgett, this webinar reviews key findings that describe the experiences of 2016 high school graduates in Washington. Consistent with previous reports, school poverty is a significant predictor of post-secondary transitions, but the level of adversity reported by students and resulting adjustment challenges provide comparable impact.
