Description
Generations of philosophers, scholars and researchers have gathered data supporting the concept that attaining higher levels of education is beneficial to individuals and societies. The results include scholarship and academic programs, organizations committed to keeping at-risk students in school, enlightened admissions policies, and national efforts to improve literacy and math skills. However, the literature supporting both the scholars' and the practitioners' efforts is notoriously scattered. This includes full bibliographic entries and commentary on books, articles and other published documents supporting racial and ethnic diversity in education, including material relating to African Americans, American Indians, Alaska Natives, Asian Americans, Latino/as and Pacific Islanders. Writing for professional admission and retention experts as well as policy makers, scholars and students, they cover materials on access and retention, social and economic factors of education, institutional initiatives, students and campus factors, and mentors and social integration.
