DUAL ENROLLMENT ASSISTANCE

The state’s Higher Education Chancellor thinks the state should help pay for dual enrollment classes for some high school students.  Dr. Sarah Armstrong-Tucker wants the state lawmakers to find a way to help cover the costs for lower-income families to afford college courses for their high school age children.  Tucker says there are all kinds of different programs in place in other states, and in West Virginia it could double the number of high school students who continue with a college education.
