  • Reimagining Citizenship for the 21st Century: A Call to Action for Policymakers and Educators

    1/1/14

    Like the demands of school and work, the demands of civic life are constantly escalating. Every American now lives, learns and works in a global society. The civic challenges of our day are significant and complex. At the same time, the ways in which Americans engage in the world are changing and expanding

  • Reversing the "standard" direction: Science emerging from the lives of African American students

    1/1/01 - Seiler, Gale

    Recognizing the persistent science achievement gap between inner-city African American students and students from mainstream, White society, this article suggests that the imposition of external standards on inner-city schools will do little to ameliorate this gap because such an approach fails to address the significance of the social and cultural lives of the students. Instead, it is suggested that the use of critical ethnographic research would enable educators to learn from the students...

  • Review of Language and Literacy in Bilingual Children

    1/1/04 - Cummins, Jim

    This reviewed volume reports the results of a large-scale study of bilingual education conducted in the mid- to late-1990s in Miami, Florida, under a grant from the National Institutes of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD). Oiler & Eilers (and their colleagues who contributed to individual chapters) have made a very substantial contribution to the research literature on bilingual education and bilingual development generally. Their quasi-experimental study is exemplary from a design...

  • Standards and Equity

    1/1/04 - Muller, Chandra

    The article focuses on the amount and content of knowledge the students get from learning in schools and addresses the issue of equality in education. Certainly, a natural source of the tension between family and school is in the objective of education in their society. The common school is a source of standard and the family a source of difference. The common school is conceived to teach all students, including those from immigrant families, a common language and curriculum. Setting...

  • STRUCTURAL INEQUITIES AND THE ACHIEVEMENT GAP IN URBAN SCHOOLS

    1/1/04 - Talbert-Johnson, Carolyn

    If teachers represent a child's most important asset, they also can be a child's greatest liability, especially in states where a shortage of well-qualified teachers impedes the academic progress of African American students in learning contexts. The author asserts that a transformation in practices must occur in teacher education programs if these programs are to become places where preservice candidates learn to adopt pedagogies that are instrumental in the academic achievement of African...

  • Teacher expectations, classroom context, and the achievement gap

    1/1/08 - McKown, Clark, Weinstein, Rhona S.

    In two independent datasets with 1872 elementary-aged children in 83 classrooms, Studies 1 and 2 examined the role of classroom context in moderating the relationship between child ethnicity and teacher expectations. For Study 1 overall and Study 2 mixed-grade classrooms, in ethnically diverse classrooms where students reported high levels of differential teacher treatment (PDT) towards high and low achieving students, teacher expectations of European American and Asian American students...

  • Technology and the Achievement Gap

    1/1/05 - Patterson, Nancy

    All children must be provided with access to computer technology and the Internet. Children write more and better when they are allowed to use word processing programs to write, and they write even better when teachers allow them to go public with their writing through the use of online portfolios or through Web publishing. Middle school teachers can amplify their voice about the role of technology in education by joining the National Council of Teachers of English and the International...

  • The Achievement Gap: Issues of Competition, Class, and Race

    1/1/03 - Hunter, Richard C., Bartee, RoSusan

    The abolition of the achievement gap between racial majority and minority students will require more than the implementation of the principles proposed by the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001. Founded upon the market-based contextual framework of competition and choice in public education, standardized test scores, and the presumption of equal access and opportunity in schools and society, this act represents a flawed approach to the improvement of standards in public education...

Casey Foundation and nine other philanthropies are joining efforts with the White House to help America’s young men of color reach their full potential and give all young people the opportunity to lead a healthy and productive life. The Casey Foundation, along with The Atlantic Philanthropies, Bloomberg Philanthropies, California Endowment, Ford Foundation, John and James L. Knight Foundation, Kapor Center for Social Impact, Open Society Foundations, Robert Wood Johnson...

  • The black-white "achievement gap" as a perennial challenge of urban science education: a sociocultural and historical overview with implications for research and practice

    1/1/01 - Norman, Obed, Ault, Charles R., Jr., Bentz, Bonnie

    A perennial challenge for urban education in the United States is finding effective ways to address the academic achievement gap between African American and White students. There is widespread and justified concern about the persistence of the achievement gap. In fact, historical evidence suggests that this achievement gap has existed at various times for groups other than African Americans. What conditions prevailed when this achievement gap existed for these other groups? Conversely...

  • The Black-White "achievement gap" as a perennial challenge of urban science education: A sociocultural and historical overview with implications for research and practice

    1/1/01 - Norman, Obed, Ault, Charles R., Jr., Bentz, Bonnie, Meskimen, Lloyd

    Explores the academic achievement gap between African American and White students in urban science classrooms. History shows that this gap existed for groups other than African Americans. The authors examine how historical and sociocultural factors in the manifestation and eventual disappearance of the gap for these groups may shed light on the present problem. The authors conclude that the sociocultural position of groups is crucial to understanding the scholastic performance of students...

  • THE IMPACT OF CULTURAL BIASES ON AFRICAN AMERICAN STUDENTS' EDUCATION

    1/1/05 - Baker, Paula Booker

    Education, at all levels, opens routes to achieve higher incomes, status advancement, and upward social mobility. The goal for most families is to present an opportunity for their children to receive a jump on acquiring knowledge to afford this achievement. Schools within our education system declare they offer a quality education for African American students. This concept will be examined along with the research that maintains schooling for African American students is deliberately...
