Title:Access without equity: Longitudinal analysis of institutional stratification by race and ethnicity: 1972-2004
Organization:Chronicle of Higher Education
Short Description:While expanding postsecondary enrollment since the mid 20th century has been well documented in prior research, we have less clarity on how individuals are allocated to different types of post-secondary institutions. In this paper, using a dataset constructed from four NCES databases (NLS, HSB, NELS and ELS), the authors track changes since 1972 in recent high school graduates’ enrollment in postsecondary institutions of varying selectivity.
Annotation:The analysis is focused on the role that escalating academic preparation plays in preserving racial/ ethnic disparities in access to highly selective institutions. Using multinomial logistic regression, the authors find Black and Latino students’ odds of attending selective institutions are declining over time relative to White and Asian American students’ opportunities. Although average precollegiate academic preparation has improved among Black and Latino high school graduates, institutions increasingly rely upon the SAT—the one measure for which White and Asian American students’ gains have been steeper than Black and Latino students’. The maintenance of racial/ ethnic inequalities in precollegiate academic preparation thus helps explain the maintenance of inequality in access to selective institutions.
