Is there nobody who can guide these students?
It’s very discouraging to read that minority students continue to be under-represented in careers that tend to pay higher wages.
Much of this is due to the fact that they grow up without role models active in higher paying jobs, so they really don’t know what options exist for them.
Enter – supposedly – school guidance counselors, admissions officers and faculty. But are they doing their job?
This can only be rectified by working with students at a granular level, in school, day in and day out. One man is trying to make a difference, please take a moment to read about him here, in my latest commentary on National Review’s higher education blog Phi Beta Cons.
