From a message from PALMS:
Many of you have told us of your interest in learning more about creating a college-going culture at the middle level. In response to your feedback, we have published case studies of how middle schools can approach this important task. “Steps in the Right Direction” features the lessons we have learned while working alongside fifteen schools who used our “Tools for Latino Family Outreach” to develop college-focused programming. In a highly readable format, the case studies describe the concrete steps that schools took to set goals and assess their progress in changing their cultures.
