ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Capella University
With the signing of the No Child Left Behind Act in 2001, much emphasis has been placed on the accountability of schools and school districts to ensure higher academic achievement of all students. The achievement gap remains among African American male students in urban school districts. This purposed quantitative study explored the relationship between African American male students in grades 4th-6th, their attitudes towards school, and academic achievement. The primary setting for this research was an urban public elementary school in Maryland. The research provided an answer to whether there was a relationship between African American male students in grades 4th-6th attitudes towards school and their academic achievement. In order to provide an answer to the purposed research question, the researcher administered the School Attitude Assessment Survey-Revised (2002) and used quarterly benchmark data of African American male students between the ages of 9-11 in grades 4th-6th to measure the relationship among their attitudes towards school and academic achievement. The expected findings of the purposed research showed a relationship among African American male students' attitudes towards school and their respective academic achievement.
