Promoting Educational Resilience among African American Students at Risk of School Failure: The Role of School Counselors
Williams, Joesph M.; Greenleaf, Arie T.; Albert, Tracey; Barnes, Erin F.
Journal of School Counseling, v12 n9 2014
While the educational difficulties of African American students from low-income households are well documented and widely discussed in the literature, far less attention has been paid to students who succeed in school despite significant challenges such as poverty, housing instability, and food insecurity. A review of the literature identifies the protective factors and processes that facilitate academic success among African American (K-12) students placed at-risk of school failure. Implications for school counselors and recommendations for facilitating educational resiliency among African American students from low-income households are discussed.
