The myth of human races by Alain F Corcos( )

13 editions published between 1997 and 2012 in English and held by 730 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The idea that human races exist is a socially constructed myth that has no grounding in science. Regardless of skin, hair, or eye color, stature or physiognomy, we are all of one species. Nonetheless, scientists, social scientists, and pseudo-scientists have, for three centuries, tried vainly to prove that distinctive and separate ""races"" of humanity exist. These protagonists of race theory have based their flawed research on one or more of five specious assumptions: - humanity can be classified into groups using identifiable physical characteristics, - human characteristics a

Affirmative action for all our children : and why college education should be free by Alain F Corcos( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"American public schools are in deep trouble. They are still characterized by ethnic and class segregation, grossly unequal teaching and learning facilities, and governed by mammoth bureaucracies with a plethora of contradictory policies and goals. For many low and medium income students, college is still not an option due to high tuition rates and poor primary school education. Is there any hope? Affirmative Action for All Our Children: And Why College Education Should Be Free tackles the hard truth and comes up with a compelling answer to solve all of these problems: the Federal Government should completely take over the education system. According to author Alain Corcos, such a takeover needs to include the federal government financing the entire education system from preschool to college, training teachers and paying their salaries, building and maintaining school facilities, developing the best curriculum to prepare all children to face today's world, and providing tuition-free college for students willing to give back by serving their nation in some capacity for two years between the ages of eighteen and twenty. Affirmative Action for All Our Children: And Why College Education Should Be Free lays out a detailed plan that paves the way for US public schools to become the best in the world. However, time is of the essence because any change will take at least two generations to affect the nation."--Page 4 of cover
Joys and sorrows in teaching sex and genetics by Alain F Corcos( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Professor Alain F. Corcos taught natural science at the university for twenty-six years from 1965 to 1991. During that time, he learned a lot about eighteen-year old students -- their thoughts, aspirations, and unpreparedness for college life. After three decades of teaching and some years of retirement behind him, he asked himself what he had learned from his experience. He chose to remember stories that reflected the joys and sorrows of teaching young people to think about science. Now, he shares these stories with you -- stories having to do with sex and genetics, teaching, and race from the biological point of view." --cover
