eJEP: eJournal of Education Policy, Fall 2013
This study examines the teacher readiness of Black graduates of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) relative to non-HBCUs. To accomplish this objective, this paper identifies several components of preparation available from the Baccalaureate and Beyond Longitudinal Study 2008/2009 (B&B: 08/09). Of the K-12 teaching preparation factors, significant differences were found between HBCU and non-HBCU graduates within a bachelor's degree teaching major. In addition, the study revealed that HBCU graduates maintained the highest proportion of teaching preparation across all variables, with the exception of awareness of the Teach Grant Program.
