The myth of human races by Alain F Corcos( Book )

The idea that human races exist is a socially constructed myth that has no grounding in science. Regardless of skin, hair, or eye color, stature or physiognomy, we are all of one species. Nonetheless, scientists, social scientists, and pseudo-scientists have, for three centuries, tried vainly to prove that distinctive and separate ""races"" of humanity exist. These protagonists of race theory have based their flawed research on one or more of five specious assumptions: - humanity can be classified into groups using identifiable physical characteristics, - human characteristics a

Affirmative action for all our children : and why college education should be free by Alain F Corcos( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"American public schools are in deep trouble. They are still characterized by ethnic and class segregation, grossly unequal teaching and learning facilities, and governed by mammoth bureaucracies with a plethora of contradictory policies and goals. For many low and medium income students, college is still not an option due to high tuition rates and poor primary school education. Is there any hope? Affirmative Action for All Our Children: And Why College Education Should Be Free tackles the hard truth and comes up with a compelling answer to solve all of these problems: the Federal Government should completely take over the education system. According to author Alain Corcos, such a takeover needs to include the federal government financing the entire education system from preschool to college, training teachers and paying their salaries, building and maintaining school facilities, developing the best curriculum to prepare all children to face today's world, and providing tuition-free college for students willing to give back by serving their nation in some capacity for two years between the ages of eighteen and twenty. Affirmative Action for All Our Children: And Why College Education Should Be Free lays out a detailed plan that paves the way for US public schools to become the best in the world. However, time is of the essence because any change will take at least two generations to affect the nation."--Page 4 of cover
