In the field of education, there have been changes in the curriculum as well. There are vigorously expressed doubts against many conventionally educated faculty members as well as public officials. Numerous colleges and universities are nowadays finding ways to change course content as well as requirements in order that the myriad forms of American diversity will be included in the curriculum (14:2).
Today, the scenery of education system in the United States can be characterized by diversity in the socio-economic profiles of students, curricula, kind of programs, and also the resources obtainable to the schools. However, it has obviously been noticed that the undergraduates in United States are going away from enrolling studies in the areas of science and engineering (Paldy, 2008; par 2). They prefer to be engrossed in social websites like Youtube and Facebook instead of demonstrating hard work by attaining a degree for a good job in the future (par 4). Hence, the country is now relying on the enrolment of overseas students. In actual fact, there are about 40% of scientists in the U.S. who are born in other countries and the problem that is foreseen is, as soon as foreign University graduates depart the country for the reason that they no longer find needed to stay (par 3). Recently, public schools in quite several cities are struggling and are underfinanced in terms of satisfying the needs of their students. As an offshoot to the above stated problem, experts (Summers and Hrabowski, 2006, par 1) felt the necessitate to stimulate students more effectively through student recruitment programs from underrepresented minorities.
This paper aims to highlight how government and non-government institutions opened the doors of opportunities to ethnic minorities of United States in the field of Education. It will also present the status of some educational programs, its major activities.
West (2007) in his book, "Inequality: Social class and Its Consequences", explained that, inequality is not unwell, since there are several factors which determine a person's opportunities and some of these are social class, race, and gender. The manner by which youth are educated, how their learning process went and how they perform in schools leave a remarkable score on their visions at an early stage of life. United States may have reach milestones in education, but issues about social class, low quality of health by the people and also psychosocial strains among individuals and groups harms the country in indirect and direct ways.
It is therefore overwhelming to underscore that, several states in US have visited communities of ethnic minorities to recruite the people to study specifically science and engineering. Distinguished Scholar Symposium was conducted for the scholars and they allowed them to visit Universities to get hold of ideas concerning advance degree programs. The minority undergraduates are also offered with opportunity to interact with other scientists (Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement
