Accountability and Opportunity in Higher Education: The Civil Rights Dimension

Abstract:

Leading scholars address the unforeseen impact of accountability standards on students of color and the institutions that disproportionately serve them. The book, part of the ongoing body of work by the Civil Rights Project, describes how federal policies can worsen existing racial inequalities in higher education and offers alternative solutions aimed to protect and advance civil rights for low-income and minority students and their colleges.
