An Exploration of Teacher Education Programs at Traditionally Black Colleges and Universities.
Lee, Marjorie W.
The paper reviews special education teacher preparation programs offered at traditionally Black institutions (TBIs). Differences are noted between TBIs, historically Black institutions, and predominantly Black institutions. The history of institutions of higher education for Blacks is reviewed. Five TBI programs for special education teachers are identified, and two--at Howard University and Hampton Institute--are described in greater detail. The author asserts that TBIs have not been encouraged in innovation or independence, yet they have successfully addressed educational needs from a Black perspective and have continued to lead in such areas as race relations, education, housing, employment, and health. A list of enrollment figures for historically Black colleges and universities is included. (CL)
