MetadataShow full item record
For far too many years, the United States has been characterized by a narrative that describes two Americas: one Black, one White; one rich, one poor. In essence, America is a place where individuals have access to opportunities based on their race and/or socioeconomic status, which undoubtedly leads to dissimilar life experiences. In this context, this report specifically addresses developmental education (also known as remedial education) approaches that serve as major barriers and, conversely, opportunities for success that are often overlooked and disproportionately affect Black students who gain access to higher education.
