Meet the Authors & Book Signing June 25th, 2014

On June 25, 2014, editors Dr. Angela Long and Dr. Christopher M. Mullin along with contributors, Dr. Margaret Becker Patterson and Dr. Wei Song, will be signing copies of their new book, America’s Forgotten Student Population.

This new book sheds light on a critical yet overlooked topic of the 21st century: the high dropout rate of GED certificate holders entering the postsecondary educational system in America. America’s Forgotten Student Population serves as a comprehensive resource for administrators, educational policy makers and researchers, offering both broad policy recommendations and tested ideas and models that can be implemented at the state and institutional level.
