dc.description.abstractA major challenge to Georgia technical colleges is the low number of students moving from secondary to postsecondary (two-year diploma/associate degree) education. Georgia Department of Education records indicate that in the 1998 school year, the latest for which data was available, 6.5% of graduating seniors entered Georgia public technical and adult schools. Dual enrollment is a state funded program that may have significant impact on increasing the percentage of high school graduates who enroll in technical college programs after graduating from high school.|This descriptive study illuminates the perceptions that students, faculty, and administrators at DeKalb Technical College and the high schools in the campus service area revealed during a series of interviews conducted in the spring, summer, and fall of 2001. The interview questions sought to bring understanding of the factors that motivate students to dual enroll in a college program of study.|Data from the study indicated that students, parents, faculty, and administrators had a general understanding of the definition, goals, and key practices of the dual enrollment program but better information must be developed to expand awareness of this program to a broader audience including students and parents of college-prep track students.
