Courtrooms and Classrooms: Latinos’ Struggle for Equal Educational Opportunity
Join us to hear from Marta Tienda, Professor of Demographic Studies and Professor of Sociology and Public Affairs at Princeton University. Professor Tienda’s research interrogates how ascribed attributes acquire their social and economic significance by investigating racial, ethnic and gender variations in social inequality. She is co-author of The Hispanic Population of the United States (1987), the first national comparison of the major nationality groups, and co-editor of two volumes about Hispanics and the Future of America published by the National Academies of Science (2006). She also has written extensively about equity and access to higher education and lectured about consequences of underinvestment in public education.
