More on the Perils of Aiming Too Low on College

You might remember that a couple of weeks ago, I blogged about an interesting new book that presents research showing that students who choose colleges that are too easy for them fail to graduate at higher rates than those who pick more challenging colleges.

My colleague Debbie Viadero has a good story up on our Web site that explores that theme in more depth. Take a look.

If you are raring to read more on the trouble with college completion, you might take a look at what the experts are saying about it on the National Journal's education blog. (You might not be able to resist dipping into the experts' dialogue about the high school dropout problem, either.)
