Black Education in the United States and It's Relevance to International Development Education. Black Education and Black Society in the United States: A Bibliography for Development Educators.
De'Ath, Colin; And Others
It is suggested that black education is a good subject for those who are interested in development and international education. These several reasons are discussed: 1) the educational system operating in black communities may in terms of comparative education methodology be compared to that operating in many colonial and ex-colonial areas, it may also be examined in terms of class structure; 2) if the effects of Negritude and the Moslem faith are thought to be important variables in the school and to have similar effects on students in different nations including the United States, use of the comparative approach is also appropriate; 3) where nations are interested in strategies to ameliorate the lot of disadvantaged groups and/or to secure integration, the United States provides some excellent case studies; 4) one can compare separate black and white educational structures in terms of operations, manpower objectives, etc. The bibliography contains these sections: 1) history; 2) political, legal, and civil rights; 3) socio-cultural attributes, class structure, and race; 4) cognitive development and socio-conceptual styles; 5) the family; 6) language and dialects; 7) learning and intelligence; 8) education, employment, and vocations; 9) urban education and case studies; 10) educational surveys; 11) equality and quality education; and, 12) innovative educational and social strategies.
