'Tracking' prevents student success

A Dartmouth professor noted in her essay "A Village of 100 People Representing the World" that if the Earth's population were shrunk to the size of a village composed of 100 people with all ratios remaining the same, 70 villagers would be unable to read and only one would have received a college education. Each student on the UH campus is that one villager, but some students have faced greater institutionalized odds than others in order to get here.
