In this report, the authors examine the many ways Black and Latino students are locked out of the advanced coursework opportunities that can set them up for success in college and careers.

Jones, Tiffany; Nichols, Andrew Howard – Education Trust, 2020
In the context of a long history of racial exclusion, policies designed to address racial inequalities continue to face strong opposition. This is especially true in the higher education sector, where there is strong resistance to efforts specifically designed to rectify racial discrimination (e.g., race-based affirmative action). This report…

Jones, Tiffany; Nichols, Andrew Howard – Education Trust, 2020
Despite the popular belief that affirmative action gives Black and Latino students an unfair advantage, these students are still underrepresented at the nation's selective colleges and at two- and four-year public colleges and universities in the vast majority of states. The truth is, it isn't enough to just believe that racial inequality is a…

Schak, J. Oliver; Bentley, Charlie; Nichols, Andrew Howard; Pilar, Wil Del – Education Trust, 2019
The United States has almost 2,000 public postsecondary institutions, which provide more than 13 million undergraduates (nearly 2.8 million of them Latinos) with what is perhaps the key to economic security in the modern economy -- a college education.

Jones, Tiffany; Berger, Katie – Education Trust, 2019
Driven by the widespread acknowledgement that the United States must increase the number of individuals with college degrees to fill workforce needs and secure the nation's position on the global economic stage, national and state leaders have set ambitious goals to increase "degree attainment" rates, or the share of adults with a…

Nichols, Andrew Howard; Schak, J. Oliver – Education Trust, 2019
If America's public colleges and universities are supposed to be true democratic engines of opportunity and social mobility, their student body and graduates should at least mirror the racial and ethnic demographics of the state in which they reside. Public institutions should reduce -- rather than exacerbate -- race-based inequalities and advance…

Dixon, Davis; Griffin, Ashley; Teoh, Mark – Education Trust, 2019
Studies consistently show that teachers of color matter for all students, and especially for students of color. Yet, the proportion of teachers of color in the workforce continues to lag far behind the share of students of color in our schools. Recruiting teachers of color only gets them into the building. We must pay equal, if not more, attention…

Elliott, Kayla C.; Jones, Tiffany – Education Trust, 2019
As Congress considers reauthorizing the Higher Education Act (HEA), there is an opportunity to implement a holistic accountability system that invests in equity, holds campuses responsible, and protects students and families.

Morgan, Ivy; Amerikaner, Ary – Education Trust, 2018
This report examines how state and local school funding decisions can either advance or hinder equity, focusing on the relationship between funding and the demographics of the students who districts served as of 2015 and looking at how the revenues of districts that serve higher percentages of students living in poverty or students of color…

Griffin, Ashley – Education Trust, 2018
If there ever was a time for educators to understand the experiences of Latino students, that time is now. Increases in anti-immigration expressions and sentiments and the very real rollback of federal protections have created an unsafe and unsettling environment in this nation and in its schools. One of the greatest resources to help educators…

Dysarz, Keith – Education Trust, 2018
Nationally, student performance in math has been flat, and achievement gaps persist. And with a growing economy driven by industries in the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields, educators are tasked with instilling interest in and preparing students for college studies and careers that will supply these in-demand jobs. Now,…

Nichols, Andrew Howard; Schak, J. Oliver – Education Trust, 2018
Understanding the economic and social benefits of more college-educated residents, over 40 states during the past decade have set goals to increase their state's share of adults with college credentials and degrees. In many of these states, achieving these "degree attainment" goals will be directly related to their state's ability to…

Jones, Tiffany; Berger, Katie – Education Trust, 2018
In this brief, the authors aim to equip policymakers and advocates for higher education opportunity and equity with a framework for analyzing and pushing for "equity-driven" free college policy. The purpose is not to challenge the momentum around free college, but to understand how programs can be designed to advance opportunity and…

Dabrowski, Joan; Marshall, Tanji Reed – Education Trust, 2018
For students to thrive and achieve at high levels, they must be interested and emotionally invested in their learning. Why? Because motivation, or the desire that propels one to do something, leads to engagement, where students are being attentive to their tasks, putting forth positive effort, persisting through challenges, and advancing their…
