Top 5 Questions About the Barriers to Access and Completion of Higher Education in Honduras
February 19, 2018
The Advance Program’s Study of Barriers to Access and Completion (SBAC) explores the pervasive obstacles that disadvantaged Honduran youth face in accessing and completing post-secondary education. The study is unique in that it probes beyond the basic quantitative question of how many students are enrolled in higher education, to explore exactly who has access to, and the ability to successfully complete, higher education. Identifying the qualitative composition of students studying higher education is important for ensuring that the Advance Program’s capacity building and scholarship strategies with local partner institutions are targeted and sensitive to the composition of students that each institution serves.
