August 1st, 2013

A Georgetown University report concludes that African-American and Latino students — especially from low-income backgrounds — are underrepresented at the most selective four-year colleges and overrepresented at open-access two- and four-year institutions. The authors also found that the situation worsened from 1994 to 2009, leading them to suggest that higher education is reinforcing socio-economic and racial inequities. (Inside Higher Ed, 07/31/13)
