"Change is a magazine dealing with contemporary issues in higher learning. It is intended to stimulate and inform reflective practitioners in colleges, universities, corporations, government, and elsewhere.

The Journal of Blacks in Higher Education

The Journal of Blacks in Higher Education | SCUP Links | Scoop.it

"The Journal of Blacks in Higher Education provides a variety of examples of major institutions that have leapt ahead of their peers in such matters as black scholarship awards, tenure appointments, postgraduate degree awards, administrative hirings, and in conferring other positions of academic power and authority on African Americans. But, once more, not much happens in lagging institutions unless all these gains and shortfalls are widely publicized and known throughout academic circles.

 

It is sometimes said that college administrators scorn outside accountability and prefer to make decisions at the faculty club. We have found that this is not true. Hundreds of America’s colleges and universities regularly provide us with the statistics we need to develop measures of relative success in the racial integration of higher education. Fortunately, too, we are helped by the fact that Americans on the whole love to keep score — even in higher education.

 

In culling out and publishing a wide-ranging collection of racial statistics on America’s colleges and universities, we do not in any way see racism lurking under every set of differing figures. Our purpose is simply to show major racial imbalances and leave competitive markets and other nonlegislative forces to operate on the information provided."

Mary Logan's curator insight, December 30, 2014 12:11 AM

I found this article interesting because it looks at how African Americans were in segregated school but they over came the power that Caucasians had during this time and strived to do better for themselves by having a positive educational based status.This article shows the history of power in our society Although the Caucasian people had power over them they overcame the power and made sure that the children who would be the adults of the future were to get a great education.
