Beachum, Floyd D.; Lewis, Chance W.
Multicultural Learning and Teaching, v3 n2 p1-8 Dec 2008
Problems facing African Americans students are complex and numerous. In this article, we describe current educational contexts (i.e., high standards, accountability, and standardized test scores). In addition, we discuss the realities confronting African American students through West?s (1994) lenses of paranoia and poverty. Finally, we present how these issues can be addressed.
