In this episode, Andrew H. Nichols and Shaun R. Harper join us to discuss the recent EdTrust report Broken Mirrors: Black Student Representation at Public State Colleges and Universities. The concept behind Broken Mirrors is that the demographics of college students does not mirror that of the general public and that students of color are vastly underrepresented on college campuses.
We discuss the ways the college admissions process is biased towards wealthy white students, from the recruitment process to standardized testing. You’ll learn about the systemic changes that need to take place to ensure that students of color have equal opportunity to succeed in higher education.
