Educational Opportunity Forum. Volume I, Number 2.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Div. of Higher Education.
In this second edition of a NY State Education Department publication devoted to higher educational opportunity, the title of the newsletter has changed from COLLEGIATE NEWSLETTER ON THE DISADVANTAGED to the EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY FORUM. The change reflects more clearly the broader emphasis that should be placed on efforts to extend the reach of higher education to include those elements in American society that have for varying reasons been unable to take advantage of it. Most of the articles in this issue are concerned with the Upward Bound program and the new educational techniques and ideas it is fostering within the universities that accommodate it. The newsletter also contains some more general articles on the disadvantaged, Black nationalism, and the federal work-study program. The problem of selecting disadvantaged college students is dealt with in both the "News and Notes" and in articles. (JS)
