Join Scholarship Plus board member, Harvard Graduate School of Education assistant professor, and Amherst College alumnus Dr. Anthony Abraham Jack, author of The Privileged Poor: How Elite Colleges are Failing Disadvantaged Students, in a conversation about the challenges and triumphs of low-income and first-generation-to-college students. More than just documenting the problems, Dr. Jack offers systemic solutions.
Dr. Jack, a native of Miami, received a scholarship to attend Gulliver Preparatory School, an elite private high school in South Florida. He went on to receive degrees from Amherst College and Harvard University. He is currently a Junior Fellow at the Harvard Society of Fellows, an Assistant Professor at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, and the Shutzer Assistant Professor at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study. His scholarship appears in the Du Bois Review, Sociological Forum, and Sociology of Education and has earned awards from the American Sociological Association, Eastern Sociological Society, the Association for the Study of Higher Education, and the Society for the Study of Social Problems. His writing and research have been featured in the New York Times, Boston Globe, The Atlantic, The Huffington Post, The National Review, The Washington Post, and NPR.
