EQUITY AND POLICY: AMERICAN AS APPLE PIE?

要約

This commentary on the studies featured in this special issue of the Journal of Women and Minorities in Science and Engineering speaks to a lofty agenda beyond research on formal K-12 education. It asserts that education is a process buffeted by social currents far removed from the classroom that can reinforce or disrupt all the good things that schools, teachers, and students themselves try to do. The commentary suggests why the stakes are high for the nation to employ equity in the preparation and participation of all children for higher education and the twenty-first century workforce. The role of public policy is central for addressing structural conditions that exclude those attempting to join the mainstream of American life, especially those selecting science as a career. Research must continue to inform this quest. Until color, gender, and disability status are treated as irrelevant to the capability of those who seek to do science, we will not have excellence with equity.
