Ebony   Ebony | Tuesday, October 3, 2017 | 188 views

We live in a world that demands you have an education. It doesn’t matter that you won’t utilize half of what you learned in college, will most likely graduate with a ridiculous amount of debt only to land in a job that pays pennies or do not wish to go to school, anyway. You pretty much have to attend a post-secondary institution of some sort for a small chance at success.

But despite the many drawbacks to obtaining a degree, the rewards are plentiful, and according to Scholarship Owl, you can attend an institution of higher learning without breaking the bank.

In fact, the educational resource site argues that some of the most affordable institutions offer the best curricula.

Blacks underrepresented at top colleges despite affirmative action


Saturday, August 26, 2017 - according to a new analysis by the new york times, black and hispanic students are still more underrepresented at top colleges than they were 35 years ago, despite affirmative action policies. the analysis found that, since 1980, when data for fall enrollment was first available from the national center for education statistics, the share of black freshmen has remained essentially unchanged. despite making up 15 percent of the college-age population, black students make up only 6 percent of freshmen. the gap is 10 points, up from 7 points in 1980. hispanic students, meanwhile, are attending more elite schools, but that rate of entry has not, in fact, kept up with the growth of hispanic students in the united states. the gap between college-age individuals and actual college students has grown from 3 points in 1980 to 9 points. terry hartle, a senior vice president at the american council on education, noted that while minority students have certainly gained ground at institutes of h ...continue
