In Envisioning Equity: Educating and Graduating Low-income, First-generation, and Minority College Students, one of the newest releases from Atwood Publishing, veteran educator and professor emeritus Angela Provitera McGlynn makes a compelling case for the vital necessity of improving and expanding the reach of higher education in the United States. She underlines the importance of this task by powerfully illustrating America s distinct slippage in education as compared to other leading countries on the international scene. She also addresses solutions, investigating answers to two crucial questions: What can college professors do to promote academic success? And, what can college administrators and public policy makers do to get more students through the educational pipeline to a college degree? McGlynn argues that America will not reach its goal of educating more young people without graduating more low-income, first-generation to college, and minority college students. Graduating more of this historically underserved population is the right thing to do, both for them as individuals and for our nation as a whole.
