Quality Education for Black Children in "Segregated" and Desegregated Settings.
Newby, Robert G.
Quality Education plays a key role in altering the oppressive conditions that affect blacks. The education of black people must, if it is to be education, promote the power, privilege and prestige of black people. Factors critical to the education of black children are testing; the curriculum, in particular the teaching of reading; teacher expectations and the allocation of social roles; and racial balance. Programs such as performance contracting, compensatory education or giving kids candy for the correct answer all suggest that the problem rests with the student. This educationist/psychologist perspective or blame the victim approach is in direct opposition to the more appropriate wholistic or systemic view of black education which takes the social structure rather than individuals as "the stuff" of its study.
