Invisibly at Risk: Low-Income Students in a Middle- and Upper-Class World
Duffy, Jennifer O.
About Campus, v12 n2 p18-25 May-Jun 2007
Women's studies programs, multicultural centers, and organizations to support gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender students are campus fixtures. Few now question diversity's contribution to the education of all students. Jennifer Duffy suggests that it's time to acknowledge, support, and celebrate one more form of diversity that is mostly hidden: "social class".
