Don’t miss this great EDTalks conversation on PSEO: A Powerful Tool for Closing Equity Gaps and Reducing Student Debt

Wednesday, January 19 | 7-8 pm.

 

Here's a sneak peak of what you’ll hear at Wednesday night's event!

"We know that students who participate in dual enrollment can have better student success outcomes than their peer who don’t. So why is it that something that is free isn’t accessed by a larger number of high school students? Because 'free' doesn’t always mean equitable or accessible."

- Maria Wright, St Cloud State University

 

"The PSEO program not only helps Minnesota students cross the biggest barrier to college - the financial cost - but it also provides an opportunity for personalization, creativity, and freedom at a level that simply doesn’t exist for most within most high school classrooms."

- Asiya Browne, People for PSEO
