Young girls of color still facing challenges on the road to higher ed
It has long been assumed that girls of color are faring much better than their male counterparts. But that's not necessarily true, experts say, drawing new attention to the daunting challenges that young girls of color face as they progress through adolescence and go on to enroll in college. Several hundred academicians, public policy officials, philanthropists and community advocates gathered at the Camden campus of Rutgers University last week to focus a broader public spotlight on the plight of young girls of color. It was the latest in a series of national initiatives designed to advocate for girls of color who are often left out of the national dialogue.
