High school can present a variety of challenges for students including academics, the social scene, or problems at home. Some of these issues are challenging enough to make kids want to drop out of school. Massachusetts’ Gateway to College program provides these at-risk students with an alternative path to a high school diploma and allows participants to earn college credit at the same time.
Jennifer Sanchez, Springfield Technical Community College Gateway to College Director, and student Linda Fernandez join Connecting Point’s Carolee McGrath to discuss the opportunities the Gateway to College program provides for western Mass students.
