My blog just received accolades in the form of a blogpost by Jane Van Galen, first generation college student and professor of education at the University of Washington. Thank you so much, Jane!
Lynda was active in starting national and campus “Class Confessions” conversations around socioeconomic issues while an undergraduate at the University of Chicago and in advocating for First Generation and Low Income students at U of C.
I posted her Class Action essay on 10 Most Classist Things About College on my campus’s Equity and Inclusion Facebook page and it was shared widely across departments.
I don’t know anyone more knowledgable about how First Generation students are faring at elite colleges around the country. I’ve learned a ton from her.
You’ll learn a lot from her, too.
I really appreciate Jane’s words, as she has taught me much herself. Check out Jane’s blog at educationandclass.com, one of the best blogs examining class and education.
