February 7, 2012 – Hour 1

What changes would lead to more African American students completing degrees in science and engineering?  We take a look at the complexities of affirmative action and education this hour, focusing on a new study by Duke economist Peter Arcidiacono called What Happens After Enrollment? Peter joins us along with Racialicious.com editor Latoya Peterson, Director of the Center for the Study of Race and Equity in Education Shaun Harper, and assistant professor of political science at Johns Hopkins University Lester Spence.
