Campbell-Whatley, Gloria D.; Comer, James
Teacher Education and Special Education, v23 n1 p19-31 Win 2000
This article explores how pre-existing structures within the educational system impede the academic achievement of many African-American learners and contribute to low self-concept, mislabeling, and placement in lower academic tracks. Methodologies and strategies needed to change these practices and/or to limit their ill effects are suggested. (Contains extensive references.) (Author/CR)
