Percentage of black students graduating in engineering is rising

Nov 6, 2017 by

The percentage of black college graduates majoring in engineering fields has increased from less than 2% to more than 12% in the past 30 years, a U.S. Department of Education report says.

The study compares transcript data of 22,000 to 30,000 students from each of three high school graduating classes — 1995, 2005, and 2015.

Blacks are the only ethnic group with a sustained increase in engineering majors, from 1.7% of the class of 1995 to 6.1% in the class of 2005 to 12.6% in 2015.

By comparison, 4.4% of Latinos in the class of 1995 went into engineering; that increased to 10.7% of the class of 2005 but dropped to 7.5% for 2015. Among Asians, 10.1% in the class of 1995 majored in engineering; that doubled to 20.2% in 2005 but dropped back to 10.8% for 2015.…

Standing Strong: Saying No to Shady Gigs

Jul 3, 2017 by

A few months ago a potential client made me with an offer. Now, as a freelance writer who spends an hour every morning browsing online job boards, I have to admit it was flattering to have a client approach me, rather than the other way around. The pay was good, and the workload, while certainly heavy, was manageable.
