Black Students and School Failure: Policies, Practices, and Prescriptions


Much work remains to be done to upgrade the educational experience and performance of the fastest growing segment of the American school poplation, blacks and other minorities. Without the benefits of educational opportunity, this group will never achieve economic independence and the self-perpetuating cycle of poor school achievement, poverty, and teen parenthood will grind on relentlessly. This timely study systematically addresses the many facets of this complex problem, explicating its many roots, assessing the current system's strengths and weaknesses, and presenting a research study of teacher-student interactions. The author outlines strategies for change and implications for training and staff development.
