How the West Indian Child is Made Educationally Subnormal in the British School System: The Scandal of the Black Child in Schools in Britain.
Coard, Bernard
In this book, the fate of West Indian children in British schools is attributed to their placement in schools for the "educationally subnormal." It is argued that the cultural bias is inherent in the IQ tests that are used to sort children into one part of the school system or another. This book is written for the West Indian community in Britain, with the hope that the community will begin to organize to alter the situation. Several recommendations are given for helping the West Indian child--actions that the British school system and the parents themselves can quite realistically bring about. (Author/JW)
