THE PRIVILEGED POOR How Elite Colleges Are Failing Disadvantaged Students

by | Read by Mirron Willis

Contemporary Culture • 7.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Mirron Willis's voice resonates in the listener's mind and drives home the finer points of this audiobook. A sociological study identifies and explores two distinct sets of teens who have made it into college but whose impoverished backgrounds inhibit or challenge them as they navigate the complexities of higher education. This qualitative study draws a distinction between those who come directly from poverty into an elite institution and those who have had the advantage of an elite high school education. Jack draws out the differences and similarities as they grapple with home, school, and the chasm that may exist between the two. Willis's deep, gentle voice captures the nuances of Jack's argument while also meaningfully conveying the quotes from the study's students.
