Symposium on "Dealing With Types of Test Biases When Black Students Are Concerned"--The Transition from High School to College: How Do We Bridge the Gap?
Hazeur, Felicie B.
In determining whether black freshmen are ready for college, the author examines the social-psychological realities from which they emerge. A poor concept of efficient utilization of time and organization, coupled with a weak academic self-discipline perpetuates a dangerous beginning for the black freshman. Parental lack of exposure to college does little to reinforce motivation, sense of direction, and self-concept. The document discusses ways of coping with the black student's problems in higher education and defines separation as a failure to prepare him for the culture in which he must function. The author also condemns one-way integration as a source of personal maladjustment for many black students and as a reinforcer of the dichotomy in American life. She concludes that only when we accept and appreciate mutual peculiarities and differences will our efforts take on new meaning and become viable exercise of professionalism. (Author/LAA)
