by Siobhan O'Connor

December 6, 2009
There's a comprehensive, and comprehensively dismal new report about the massive (seriously-it's massive) achievement disparity between white and minority and low-income students at the college level.A sample statistic: Seven percent of minority students who entered community colleges received bachelor's degrees within 10 years. Read that again.Now, without further ado, and without any analysis herein about why the numbers are so bad (we'll do that later): Here it is. And if you don't want to read the report, there's an article about it here.
