From Our Readers: The Failure of Education to Deconstruct the American Myth of Success.
Goode, Constance
Equity & Excellence in Education, v30 n1 p82-84 Apr 1997
Discusses the success myth and the American multicultural heritage and education's unintentional perpetuation of this myth. Argues that the roots of this misconception are found in most white educators' failure to understand the differences between the immigration of white Europeans and the forced immigration of Africans. Society's assimilation barriers to most African Americans compound this misconception. (GR)
