That collective sigh you hear isn’t just kids and college students bemoaning the start of a new school year. The chorus is rounded out by professors and researchers tanned from fieldwork (or, more likely, pale and blinking after emerging from weeks in libraries). Luckily, all their hard work means we have lots of new research on education to share as we, collectively, head back to our campuses and classrooms. Here’s a taste of what our prolific friends at the TSP Community Page Education & Society have published recently:
- How Multiracial College Students Cope: A summary of new research by Samuel D. Museus, Susan A. Lambe Sariñana, and Tasha Kawamata Ryan.
- Improving Support for College Students with Disabilities: A summary of new research by Barbara Hong.
- Good Guidance Increases the Numbers of College-Bound Kids: A summary of new research by Megan M. Holland.
- Do Your Kindergarten Readiness Beliefs Match What Teachers Measure? A summary of research by Jaime Puccioni.
They also provide links to the following articles about education and school:
- Choosing A Major: Dollars and Sense?
- Why Historically Black Colleges and Universities Remain Vital in U.S. Higher Education
- Why the U.S. Should Improve Support for Colleges and Universities Serving Hispanic Students
