Abstract:This study focuses on the different areas that affect college readiness during student’s high school experience. This includes, but is not limited to, socioeconomic status, percent of students enrolled in agriculture classes, teacher quality and retention, and school resources. The data will be collected by reviewing previous studies on the above factors. After the factors are determined, the statistics will be collected from the Illinois Report Card website and the Illinois Agriculture Education website. This study is expected to find that in schools in which agriculture education is present, college readiness statistics were higher. Another point of this study is to find factors that correlate with college readiness.
