Summary

An introduction by Gregory R. Anrig summarizes these proceedings. Benjamin Payton keynoted the conference by describing a major task of American education as providing individuals with mobility, equity, and opportunities for a better economic life. M. Susana Navarro spoke about the effects that new state standards for quality in education have had on the access of minority students to higher education. James Blackwell offered 12 suggestions aimed at increasing access and reducing the attrition rate of minority students in college and professional schools. Constance Clayton described a number of successful Black and Hispanic high schools. Bernard Gifford suggested that teacher testing might serve as a form of recognition for educators who wish to demonstrate special proficiency in their profession. Raphael Cortada pointed out the specific problems that community colleges now face in an age of change without growth. Tomas Arciniega and Steven Arvizu made specific suggestions that colleges can implement in order to improve quality and equality on their campuses. Frank Newman closed with a historical as well as a future look at American education. (PN)
