African-American Teens Discuss Their Schooling Experiences

Synopsis

The purpose of this study--based on interviews and questionnaire results from nearly 300 African-American students--is to provide educational policymakers, teachers, counselors, and administrators with feedback that can improve the schooling experiences of all African-American students. African-American teens have high expectations for themselves, their teachers, and their counselors, and they want challenge and rigor instead of a low level of instruction.
