Pulley, John L.
Chronicle of Higher Education, v46 n34 pA40-42 Apr 28 2000
Describes the Posse Foundation program which sends "posses" of 10 carefully chosen graduates from inner-city high schools, en masse, to selective private colleges seeking a more diversified student population. Reports that in the past 10 years, almost 90 percent of Posse students have graduated within five years. Also identifies problems, such as white resentment and legal threats. (DB)
