Making Policy Matter
Although policy makers have been talking about and drafting policies to address inequities in student higher education experiences and outcomes for decades, problems of racial-ethnic inequities have proven to be intractable under current accountability and assessment policies.
In this seminar Estela Mara Bensimon and Alicia C. Dowd, co-directors of the Center for Urban Education at the University of Southern California, discuss research findings from college sites in California and Wisconsin that are using their multi-disciplined approach and tools to help policymakers, leaders, and practitioners make sense of accountability data from the perspective of equity for racial and ethnic minority students.
