* Compare to Black American Students in an Affluent Suburb by Ogbu

Posted By: Jeffrey Carpenter on November 29, 2006
 
I found this book to be an interesting contrast -- or maybe even a response -- to John Ogbu's book, "Black American Students in an Affluent Suburb" (2003). Ogbu studied a school in Shaker Heights, Illinois, that is similar in significant ways to Berkeley High School. While Noguera and colleagues conclude that ostensibly neutral school policies and practices are the principal cause of the persistence of the achievement gap at Berkeley, Ogbu placed much of the blame in Shaker Heights on cultural practices and beliefs of the local African-American community.
