The rich-poor divide on America’s college campuses is getting wider, fast - The Hechinger Report

The rich-poor divide on America’s college campuses is getting wider, fast - The Hechinger Report | digital divide information | Scoop.it

"...rich kids go to elite private and flagship public campuses while poor kids — including those who score higher on standardized tests than their wealthier counterparts — end up at community colleges and regional public universities with much lower success rates, assuming they continue their educations at all. And new federal data analyzed by the Hechinger Report and the Huffington Post show the gap has been widening at a dramatically accelerating rate since the economic downturn began in 2008."

The (bigger than we realized) role race plays in college debt | digital divide information | Scoop.it
Student debt is an inequality problem. Borrowing to invest in a good college education is a sound investment for many, if not most, young people. Debt is a problem for those who borrow expensively to attend poor-quality institutions. And the debt problem has a strong racial dimension.

I wonder if we need human-centric messages.  Nate Davis suggests we need student-centric messages, but this is a subset of the larger human enterprise that schools represent. Whether it is students, teachers, administrators, support staff, etc. school is about people first.

How Young People Are Changing Civics, by Any Media Necessary | Educator Innovator

How Young People Are Changing Civics, by Any Media Necessary | Educator Innovator | digital divide information | Scoop.it

"...Mohammad’s video, along with stories of other young people “coming out” online as undocumented, are highlighted in an upcoming book, “By Any Media Necessary.” Co-authors and media scholars Henry Jenkins, Sangita Shresthova, Liana Gamber-Thompson, Neta Kligler-Vilenchik, and Arely M. Zimmerman explore how young people like Mohammad use media to participate in the political sphere and speak out about issues that matter to them.

"Political participation is changing, and the authors present multiple examples of young people who aren’t adhering to old definitions. In the past, participation meant volunteering for a campaign, collecting signatures, joining a protest movement, or donating to a candidate. But young people today are harnessing digital and social media tools to get their stories out to the world.


“By Any Media Necessary” will be published this summer [2016].

"The book, according to co-author Gamber-Thompson, is a compilation of several years of writing and research that included talking with hundreds of young people across the country. The project was supported by the MacArthur Foundation and was carried out through the MacArthur Research Network on Youth and Participatory Politics. The authors have created free, online, easy-to-implement workshops and curriculums for educators across disciplines who want to understand how young people are reshaping civic activism."
