Drawing upon his personal experiences at Harvard and as a professor for 25 years at the City University of New York, Mandery offers a scathing critique of elite colleges for creating a route to admission that is available almost exclusively to the wealthy. Mandery argues that these colleges operate in tacit agreement with suburban communities, which draw affluent families who seek to avail their children of this pathway, and, together, create a de facto segregated education system that is a principal driver of skyrocketing income inequality in America.
Please join the Stanford Center for Racial Justice and the McCoy Family Center for Ethics in Society in a timely conversation in a timely conversation with Professor Mandery about his book, moderated by Stanford Law Professor Rick Banks.
