Mathematics and Science Learning Milieus in Diverse Schools in Florida: African-American Students from Small Town, Low Socio-Economic Backgrounds.
Robinson, Scott
This paper presents a description of a northern Florida middle school and of the students enrolled in the school, 92% of whom are African-American. Three quarters of the entire student population is eligible for free or reduced price government assisted lunches. This figure is double the state average. During academic year 1991-92, expenditure per student enrolled within regular academic programs was 12% below the state average or $2,920 per student. Observations of an eighth-grade physical science class, a sixth-grade mathematics class, and an eighth-grade science assembly are related. Interviews with the science teacher and mathematics teacher from these classes are given along with a list of needs generated from mathematics and science teachers. Traditional methods of teaching prevailed in these classrooms. (MKR)
