520    Minorities and Girls in School gives voice to four 
       psychologists (Schofield, Slaughter-Defoe, Eccles, and 
       Betz) who use scientific inquiry to understand what helps 
       and what hinders the academic and life performance of 
       minority students and girls. These are scientists who 
       approach their subject matter with technical skill and 
       personal passion to ask such questions as: What has 
       desegregation accomplished? Can beneficial parent-child 
       interactions be facilitated so as to improve school-
       related performance? Why are we seeing such low levels of 
       achievement for girls and minorities in math and science? 
       What stops women and minorities from choosing and 
       completing majors in science and engineering? Each chapter
       represents an effort to communicate a vital area of 
       scientific investigation to those in political life who 
       could use that knowledge to formulate effective public 
       policy. Near the end of each chapter are the questions 
       that each of the authors was asked following the original 
       briefing. 
520 8  These interchanges will show how policy makers begin to 
       think about the use of scientific information in a 
       political context.
