Issues in Educating African American Children and Youth


by Robert J. Jagers & Grace Carroll — 2002

The issues considered in this chapter overlap with concerns for all students. For example, the issues of educating the whole child, the role of teachers, and school choice, which we will address below, are part of the educational discussion in all segments of American society. However, our focus will be specifically on the schooling of urban African American children, because of their unique experience of racial oppression and the distinct cultural adaptations that occur in inner-city environments. We begin the chapter with a cursory treatment of race, class, culture, and learning outcomes.
