Prof. Gilda Ochoa's "Academic Profiling" Named in Huffington Post Among "35 Books All Educators of Black and Latino Students Must Read"
Pomona College Professor of Sociology and Chicana/o-Latina/o Studies Gilda Ochoa’s recent book, Academic Profiling: Latinos, Asian Americans, and the Achievement Gap, was featured in The Huffington Post as one of the “35 Books All Educators of Black and Latino Students Must Read.”
Academic Profiling looks at the inequalities between Asian American and Latino/a students at two California public high schools, and examines the ways in which those disparities, measured primarily by standardized testing, are due in part to the educational tracks students are placed upon.
