9781849665223: Meritocracy and the University: Selective Admission in England and the United States
Présentation de l'éditeur :

Who gets into elite universities, how and why? What are places like Harvard in the United States or Cambridge in England looking for when they admit undergraduate students? What qualities do selectors value and how do they decide between many applicants with often stellar attainment records? And, are we all better off because of who these elite universities admit? Meritocracy and the University provides an insight into the world of university admissions. Based on interviews with professional admissions staff and academic faculty members who select students, the book explains what selectors value and how they make decisions. By shining a light on the world of university admissions in England and in the United States, readers are invited to reflect on the similarities and differences in who selects and how selection is done, the purpose and mission of universities, and the challenges universities face in building fair admissions processes when earlier opportunities to shine in education are unequally distributed.

Revue de presse :

This book is essential reading for all those concerned about inequalities in Higher Education. Drawing on rich and wide-ranging data, it provides a fascinating insight into admission policies in elite universities in the USA and UK. It shines a piercing analytical light on an area we know very little about, and in doing so raises important questions about the value and purpose of elite higher education. --Diane Reay, Professor of Education, Cambridge University, UK

A balanced overview of elite college admissions in the US and UK that lets us hear the voices of the gatekeepers. --Joseph Soares, Professor of Sociology, Wake Forest University, USA

Description du livre Bloomsbury Publishing PLC. Hardback. État : new. BRAND NEW, Meritocracy and the University: Selective Admission in England and the USA, Anna Mountford-Zimdars, Based on a hundred interviews with some of the key stakeholders in university admissions, and statistics from both primary and secondary sources, this book explains the values, processes and practices that judge some individuals as worthy of getting an education at elite universities and deny admission to other applicants. By juxtaposing the UK and US systems the book invites readers from both sides of the Atlantic to see the familiar as strange and to reflect on the underlying values behind the selection of students. It illustrates how particular discussions of meritocracy affect individuals and relate to the history and social climate of each nation. N° de réf. du libraire B9781849665223
