Losing our future : how minority youth are being left behind by the graduation rate crisis by Gary Orfield( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In an increasingly competitive global economy, the consequences of dropping out of high school are devastating to individuals, communities and our national economy. At an absolute minimum, adults need a high school diploma if they are to have any reasonable opportunities to earn a living wage. A community where many parents are dropouts is unlikely to have stable families or social structures. Most businesses need workers with technical skills that require at least a high school diploma. Yet, with little notice, the United States is allowing a dangerously high percentage of students to disappear from the educational pipeline before graduating from high school. Nationally, high school graduation rates are low for all students, with only an estimated 68% of those who enter 9th grade graduating with a regular diploma in 12th grade. According to the calculations used in this report, in 2001, only 50% of all black students, 51% of Native American students, and 53% of all Hispanic students graduated from high school. Black, Native American, and Hispanic males fare even worse: 43%, 47%, and 48% respectively. This report seeks to highlight these disparities to draw the public's and policymakers' attention to the urgent need to address this educational and civil rights crisis. Appended are: (1) State Profiles; (2) Methodology and Results of 50 State Survey of Graduation Rate Accountability; (3) Definitions of Terms; (4) National and State Graduation Rates; and (5) Promoting Power. (Contains 34 endnotes.) [This report also produced by the Civil Society Institute, (CSI), Newton, Massachusetts.]

Energy development on tribal lands( Recording )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Bureau of Indian Affairs estimates that while recognized Native American tribal land comprises only five percent of the land area of the United States, it contains an estimated ten percent of all of the nation's energy resources. Federally-recognized Native American communities in California increasingly are exploring the benefits of modern renewable energy development on tribal lands. Tribal energy projects can potentially increase self-sufficiency, foster economic development, provide employment, and contribute to a low-carbon future for the entire state. This panel will explore the opportunities for renewable energy projects on tribal lands, discuss their potential environmental benefits and impacts, and summarize the various applicable laws and regulations. -- vendor's description
