Abstract

When debating how best to support the college aspirations of students of color, education reformers tend to zero in on efforts to improve teacher quality. However, recent research on the factors that promote college-going among Black and Latinx students point to the key roles played by many of the adults in their lives, including not only teachers but also family members, school counselors, and school psychologists.
