The Agony of Education is about the life experience of African American students attending a historically white university. Based on seventy-seven interviews conducted with black students and parents concerning their experiences with one state university, as well as published and unpublished studies of the black experience at state universities at large, this study captures the painful choices and agonizing dilemmas at the heart of the decisions African Americans must make about higher education.

Recensioner i media

""The Agony of Education is one of the rare and urgently needed volumes that sets out to examine some of the very arduous and complex questions...." -"Critical Sociology "This book deserves our praise as being a brilliant piece of sociological research." -"Social Forces "Indeed the book provides what some may characterize as a stinging account of the experiences of black students at white colleges and universities. However, the authors do not focus solely on only the negative aspects of the collegiate experience for black students but also offer positive accounts of their experiences to provide balance and credibility for the findings.." -"Qualitative Studies in Education
