Select Issues in Educational Services for Behavioral Disordered Black Youth.
Price, Joseph P.
The author identifies three school practices which discriminate against Black children and proposes three measures school systems can take toward a more equitable learning experience. The following negative practices are discussed: overenrollment of Black children in special education classes for the emotionally disturbed, the disproportionate suspension of Black students from school, and the unrealistic expectations that teachers seem to be developing for poor Black children. Recommended are a commitment to the process of collaboration among local, state, and national organizations concerned with the welfare of Black children; articulation of goal statements by relevant organizations coupled with advocacy so that goals are encompassed in state and federal laws and in school policies; and promotion and implementation of a comprehensive monitoring system to assure that laws and policies are being fully complied with. Appended is a list of six resource organizations. (DB)
