The Education of Children Whose Nightmares Come Both Day and Night.
Irvine, Jacqueline Jordan
Journal of Negro Education, v68 n3 p244-53 Sum 1999
Examines four explanations for the low academic achievement of black and poor urban students: socioeconomic, sociopathological, cultural, and genetic. Acknowledges the merits of the first three, noting their specific weaknesses and limitations. Describes key characteristics of teachers who make a difference in reversing the cycle of despair and school failure among urban students (e.g, caring, mothering, believing, and demanding). (SM)
