The Qualified Student

A History of Selective College Admission in America

In The Qualified Student Harold S. Wechsler focuses on methods of student selection used by institutions of higher education in the United States. More specifically, he discusses the way that college and university reformers employed those methods to introduce higher education into a broader cross-section of America, by extending access to an increased number of students from nontraditional backgrounds. Implicit in much of this book is an underlying social and ethical question: How legitimate was and is higher education’s regulation of social mobility? Public concern over colleges’ and universities’ practices became inevitable once they became regulators between social classes. The challenging of colleges’ admissions policies in the courts augments similar concerns that have been present in legislatures for decades. The volume is divided into three main sections: Prerequisites, Columbia and the Selective Function, and Implications. It focuses mainly on four universities, The University of Michigan, Columbia University, the University of Chicago, and the City University of New York. Wechsler maintains that unlike other universities, these institutions were pacesetters; they did not adopt a new policy simply because some other college had already adopted it. A new introduction brings the book, originally published in 1977, up to date and demonstrates its continuing importance in today’s academic world of selective admissions.

Mathematik versteht man oder eben nicht. Der eine ist dafür natürlich begabt, dem anderen bleibt dieses Fach für immer ein Rätsel. Stimmt nicht, sagt nun Barbara Oakley und zeigt mit ihrem Buch, dass wirklich jeder ein Gespür für Zahlen hat. Mathematik braucht nämlich nicht nur analytisches Denken, sondern auch den kreativen Geist. Denn noch mehr als um Formeln geht es um die Freiheit, einen der vielen möglichen Lösungsansätze zu finden. Der Weg ist das Ziel. Und wie man zum richtigen Ergebnis kommt, ist eine Kunst, die man entwickeln, entdecken und in sich wecken kann. Die Autorin vermittelt eine Vielfalt an Techniken und Werkzeugen, die das Verständnis von Mathematik und Naturwissenschaft grundlegend verbessern. (K)ein Gespür für Zahlen nimmt Ihnen — vor allem wenn Sie sich in Schule, Uni oder Beruf mathematisch oder naturwissenschaftlich beweisen müssen — nicht nur die Grundangst, sondern stärkt Ihren Mut, Ihren mathematischen Fähigkeiten zu vertrauen. So macht Mathe Spaß!

In dem freudlosen, abgeschiedenen Ort Starkfield in Neuengland, der die meiste Zeit des Jahres im Schnee versinkt, sind auch die Gefühle der Menschen zu Eis erstarrt. Die Pulitzerpreisträgerin Edith Wharton erzählt von einer untergegangenen Welt, die in den Figuren ihres berührenden Romans erschreckend lebendig wird. Den Farmer Ethan Frome verbindet eine Dreiecksbeziehung mit seiner Frau und deren jüngerer Cousine Mattie. Ihr Leben ist geprägt von Liebe und Einsamkeit, von sexueller Frustration und moralischer Verzweiflung. Eine archetypische Geschichte von leidenschaftlichem Aufbegehren und tragischer Passivität, von Sprachlosigkeit und der Unfähigkeit, dem Schicksal zu entrinnen. Ein kompositorisches Meisterwerk, pure Erzählmagie!
