Racial Inequality In College Enrollment Patterns
from Inside Higher Ed
From Nov. 21:
A report by the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce is warning that admission practices and inequality in state education funding are creating two separate and unequal tracks to public colleges and universities. The report concludes that white students are disproportionately represented at selective public colleges and make up 64 percent of freshman enrollment despite only being 54 percent of the college-age population. Meanwhile, only 7 percent of black freshmen and 12 percent of Latino freshmen attend selective public colleges, despite making up 15 percent and 21 percent of the college-age population respectively.
