Description:

Author Gilda L. Ochoa, Professor of Sociology and Chicana/o-Latina/o Studies at Pomona College discusses her new book. Ochoa addresses today's so-called achievement gap by going directly to the source. At one California public high school where the controversy is lived every day, Ochoa turns to the students, teachers, and parents to learn about the very real disparities—in opportunity, status, treatment, and assumptions—that lead to more than just gaps in achievement. Copies of Professor Ochoa's book will be available for purchase.
