あらすじ・解説

Getting in is only half the battle. The Privileged Poor reveals how - and why - disadvantaged students struggle at elite colleges and explains what schools can do differently if these students are to thrive.

The Ivy League looks different than it used to. College presidents and deans of admission have opened their doors - and their coffers - to support a more diverse student body. But is it enough just to admit these students? In The Privileged Poor, Anthony Jack reveals that the struggles of less privileged students continue long after they've arrived on campus. Admission, they quickly learn, is not the same as acceptance. This bracing and necessary book documents how university policies and cultures can exacerbate preexisting inequalities and reveals why these policies hit some students harder than others.

If we truly want our top colleges to be engines of opportunity, university policies and campus cultures will have to change. Jack provides concrete advice to help schools reduce these hidden disadvantages - advice we cannot afford to ignore.

I have so many thoughts! This book should be a must read for educational administrators.

I resonate so much!

Great read, very easy to listen to and follow along with the physical book. Required reading for any social economically disadvantaged youth going to college, grad school or is navigating college right now. Professors, policy makers, donors, take a listen!
An eye opener!

LIVED IT!

As a member of "the privalged poor" that attended a very elite post secondary school, this research and book is timeless for me and my children. Without a doubt, my review if I shared in it's entirety, would easily lay the groundwork for a Ph.D. proposal for a disortation. Suffice to say, an absolute must read and tell!
