This paper ascertains current obstacles to African-American entry into American higher educational institutions, including K-12 education; academic support (e.g., counseling and advising); standardized tests; financial assistance, or affirmative action programs. The paper looks at how these impact African-American students' entry into, and success in, American higher education institutions. Discussion of the sorts of obstacles faced by African-Americans, in pursuit of their higher education in the United States, forms the basis for a survey instrument for the study.

From the Paper:

"The 14th Amendment (1868) abolished this rule ("Constitution", 2000). In the mid-1800's, United States Supreme Court Chief Justice Roger B. Taney, in the Dred Scott decision, argued that the U.S, Constitution had not included Negroes as a participating element, or beneficiary of privileges (Dred Scott case, 2002). That ruling was eventually negated by the Civil War and Abolition. Still, equal; educational access for all blacks in America remains elusive, even now. Also, Americans are still divided over using race to admit students to colleges or universities."
