Increasing faculty diversity : the occupational choices of high-achieving minority students by Stephen Cole( )

11 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in English and held by 1,685 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annotation In recent years, colleges have successfully increased the racial diversity of their student bodies. They have been less successful, however, in diversifying their faculties. This book identifies the ways in which minority students make occupational choices, what their attitudes are toward a career in academia, and why so few become college professors. Working with a large sample of high-achieving minority students from a variety of institutions, the authors conclude that minority students are no less likely than white students to aspire to academic careers. But because minorities are less likely to go to college and less likely to earn high grades within college, few end up going to graduate school. The shortage of minority academics is not a result of the failure of educational institutions to hire them; but of the very small pool of minority Ph. D. candidates. In examining why some minorities decide to become academics, the authors conclude that same-race role models are no more effective than white role models and that affirmative action contributes to the problem by steering minority students to schools where they perform relatively poorly. They end with policy recommendations on how more minority students might be attracted to an academic career

Attitudes towards bilingual education among Hispanics and a nationwide sample by Stephen Cole( Book )

4 editions published between 1980 and 1983 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bilingual education is an issue which has been of deep concern to immigrant, particularly Hispanic, communities, but has had little visibility to the general public. No systematic surveys have been conducted either among Hispanics or the general public to find out how people feel about this issue. This report presents the results of two telephone surveys conducted on bilingual education, one of Hispanics living in New York City and Los Angeles, the other of a nationwide sample. Reported on are (1) the attitudes of Hispanics toward bilingual education; (2) a causal analysis of the attitudes of Hispanics toward bilingual education (in terms of experience with the public schools, importance placed on learning English, English-Spanish orientation, assimilationism, and demographic characteristics); (3) reasons for support of bilingual education; (4) bilingual education and evaluation of public schools; (5) the attitudes of Americans toward bilingual education; and (6) a causal analysis of the attitudes of Americans toward bilingual education (in terms of assimilationism, attitudes toward Hispanics, and general political attitudes). Data gathered during the survey are presented in 17 tables, and appendices contain a detailed discussion of methods and procedures, the questionnaires used for both surveys, and a Spanish translation of the Hispanic questionnaire.
