Editors Tierney (higher education, U. of Southern California) and Colyar (higher education, U. of Buffalo) and three co-contributors follow a year in the lives of five adolescent students preparing for college. The authors examine the paths that brought the students to where they are now and the challenges they face. Those challenges include lives of poverty, attendance at overcrowded schools, and pressure to be the first in their families to attend college. The stories are intended to provide insight for school officials and policy makers in urban high schools who are working to improve students' chances for access to college.
