We collaborated with the Ford Family Foundation to study college outcomes for the 42 percent of Oregon’s high school students who attend a rural school. These students have lower rates of college enrollment, persistence, and completion than their nonrural peers—and the enrollment gap is growing. The data suggests some ways Oregon’s education stakeholders can support rural students and close the college outcome gaps.
