The Canary in the Mine: The Achievement Gap Between Black and White Students.
Singham, Mano
Phi Delta Kappan, v80 n1 p8-15 Sep 1998
Favored explanations for the achievement gap between black and white students reflect experts' positions on the ideological spectrum, while overlooking fundamental problems with the educational delivery system. The situation of black students is not hopeless, thanks to new research that abandons whites' academic performance as the norm and advocates developing cooperative studying and problem-solving habits in all students.
