The Research Network on Racial and Ethnic Inequality (RNREI) examines the sources of policies to remedy group based disparities in education, wealth, income, employment, politics, and health.The Young Scholars Camp provides high school students an Advanced Placement styled curriculum in these subjects: Writing, Math, and Science & Technology. Middle school students will receive an honors curriculum. We anticipate that 10 middle school and up to 14 high school students will attend the camp this year, which will offer a high-level curriculum to students with the expectation that they will register for these types of classes upon returning to school in the fall.
This year's research topics include: racial wealth gap, new black middle class, race and hypertension, stereotype threat, the racial test score gap, black-Latino relations, and black immigrants to the US.
