Students in Milwaukee Public Schools who enrolled in specialized curricula, such as Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate, were more likely to enroll in college than their peers who did not, according to a report released Thursday. Officials say results of the study, by the Public Policy Forum, also show that typical achievement gaps tied to students' socioeconomic status also appear to narrow among students enrolled in such specialized programs.
