Butner, Bonita K.; Ferguson, Ralph; Bean, Denise L.; Huerta, M.
The challenge for the future is to link values and find common ground that encourages positive change. Education must no longer be a tool that simply serves public and private sector managers to preserve the authority of the privileged in large and small economies. Access to graduate education can become the bridge for developing common values in order to resolve the many complex issues of the future. In the United States, education is the key to stimulating diverse populations that have the potential to build the wealth that benefits the economy and prepares for a prosperous future. This article asserts that promoting graduate education for minority students will help address the growing economic chasm in today's society. (Author)
