Increasing College Access For Low-Income Students With the Proposal of Building Social Capital

Author(s): Waddell Gordon

This article analyzes the job of social capital in school access for low-pay understudies. Research recommends that low friendly capital is an obstruction for accomplishing advanced education. Besides, research shows that rising social capital furnishes understudies with significant data, solid organizations, and sensible objective setting fundamental for school access. Proof backings both solid and powerless organizations, explicitly family, companion, and school connections. An examination of the singular organizations uncovers that confined connections are insufficient for expanding school access. The strategy proposal is for a joining of each of the three organizations to give a far reaching structure to significantly expanding low-pay understudies' admittance to advanced education.
