A volume in Research on African American EducationSeries Editors: Carol Camp Yeakey, Washington University in St. Louisand Ronald D. Henderson, National Education AssociationThe book aims to develop a clearer understanding of the influence of social dynamics onthe educational opportunities of high school students of color in the urban setting of California's Los Angeles area. Specifically, weexamine how students' backgrounds, high school experiences and own agency shape their college preparation processes andpostsecondary aspirations. While some research has been done on high school students' college-choice process, this book is unique inits broad and comparative approach. It examines the experiences of students across 10 schools, identifying broad themes that areillustrated through specific case studies. This approach allows readers to understand the broader issues that face students fromunderserved backgrounds as they pursue college, while illuminating how these issues uniquely manifest themselves in individualschool contexts.
