Magdalena Martinez (Lincy Institute and College of Urban Affairs) has written a chapter that has been published in the book Engaged Research and Practice: Higher Education and the Pursuit of the Public Good.
Engaged Research and Practice is about two prevailing and complementary ideas that have surfaced in the higher education arena: engaged research and higher education for the public good. Engaged research is scholarship that not only attempts to open up new knowledge, but also does so with a sense that the new knowledge, insight, and directions have a direct relationship to needs and problems within our communities, institutions, and policy arenas. Martinez offers a critical look at the importance of families and parents in models of higher education access in her chapter,"The Problem With Our Students... Is That Their Families Don't Value Education."
