About Author

Daryao Khatri, PhD, holds a doctorate in physics with emphases on mathematics and computer science from the Catholic University of America, as well as a bachelor's and Master's in physics from the University of Delhi, India, from 1966 and 1968 respectively. During 1968-70, Khatri taught at Jamia Millia Islamia, Department of Physics, India. Since 1973, he has taught diverse populations in all classes at the University of District of Columbia in the departments of physics and computer science. Anne O. Hughes, PhD, began her professional career in an inner-city school on the docks of Baltimore in a split-level class, armed with three courses taken at the local teachers college that proved unusable with virtual non-readers (fourth grade) and accelerated students (third grade). This teaching-learning experience changed her life, encouraging her to earn a Master's in educational psychology and reading from the University of South Carolina and a doctorate in educational psychology and reading from the University of Chicago. More significantly, it was because of this experience that she has devoted her career to working with poor, minority, and increasingly diverse student populations, whether at the University of Texas, the University of Arizona, the U.S. Department of Education, or most recently at the University of the District of Columbia.
