Classnotes Podcast (October 14, 2008) The promise of access to college and to educational technology has not been fulfilled for low-income minority students, particularly first-generation college students and their families. Nationally, children in low-income families are 32 percent less likely to attend college than those in families with higher incomes. And many families do not have access to information about colleges, how they operate, what is needed to apply and how to obtain financial aid. Aurelio Montemayor, M.Ed., director of the IDRA Texas Parent Information and Resource Center, gives examples of how K-12 schools can actively support college access for their students. Aurelio is interviewed by Christie Goodman, APR, IDRA’s communications manager.
