BRMA has positive effects, report says

UNC School of Education faculty and graduate students evaluated the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools Blue Ribbon Mentor-Advocate (BRMA) program and recently released a report saying the program has positive effects on students involved.
The school studied the effectiveness of BRMA by looking at how it has impacted high school graduation, college attendance, test scores and grade point averages. The report showed 97.5 percent of BRMA mentees graduated high school and all of those who graduated continued to post-secondary education. In addition, the report found that mentees had higher high school grade point averages than a comparison group of students not enrolled in the program.
BRMA and the UNC School of Education will present the report to the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools Board of Education at their meeting today (Thursday) at 7 p.m.
