A PLEA FOR EDUCATIONAL EXCELLENCE.
JOSEY, E.J.
TO PREPARE NEGROES FOR PARTICIPATION IN A MULTIRACIAL, OPEN SOCIETY, NEGRO COLLEGES MUST OFFER THEIR STUDENTS A QUALITY EDUCATION. BEFORE THIS CAN OCCUR, HOWEVER, THE ACADEMIC DEFICIENCIES WHICH EVEN IN COLLEGE CHARACTERIZE NEGRO STUDENTS MUST BE ELIMINATED. THUS, NEGRO COLLEGES SHOULD CONTINUE TO OFFER REMEDIAL INSTRUCTION TO THEIR STUDENTS, AND AT THE SAME TIME RAISE THEIR EDUCATIONAL STANDARDS. ALSO, THE NEGRO COLLEGE CURRICULUM SHOULD CONTINUE TO OFFER A WIDE VARIETY OF DISCIPLINES AND INFORMAL COURSES OF STUDY. NEGRO STUDENTS THEMSELVES MUST RECOGNIZE THEIR RESPONSIBILITY TO OVERCOME EDUCATIONAL DEFICIENCIES AND TO GAIN CULTURAL ENRICHMENT. THAT THESE UNDERACHIEVING YOUTH POSSESS ACADEMIC POTENTIAL IS WITNESSED BY THE SUCCESS OF SUCH COLLEGE RECRUITMENT PROGRAMS AS "NEGRO OPPORTUNITY AT HOFSTRA (NOAH)." MOREOVER, EXCELLENT AND VARIED OCCUPATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES AWAIT THE QUALIFIED NEGRO WHO GRADUATES FROM COLLEGE. THIS ARTICLE WAS PUBLISHED IN "THE QUARTERLY REVIEW OF HIGHER EDUCATION AMONG NEGROES," VOLUME 35, NUMBER 3, JULY 1967. (LB)
