Personally, this points to a broken system that doesn’t need to be facilitated into a working system. The goal isn’t to get kids into college. That’s not a useful activity unto itself. (Unless you work for a college.)
The real goal is to get these kids productive. Generating value they can trade to increase their standard of living. Teach them in a way that works for them. Mentor them (seems to be the goal of the organization that created the graphic) to understand they can participate in bigger/better markets (than low-level drug slinging or robbery or fast food/TSA service).
