Racial Disparities in New Millennium Schools: Implications for School Counselors
LeBeauf, Ireon
Journal of School Counseling, v6 n10 2008
This article explores the role of race in new millennium schools and its impact on students. Multicultural, psycho-social, and academic issues are addressed, and interventions for school counselors are discussed. Racially correlated disparities in K-12 education are apparent in: test scores, grades, retention and drop-out rates, identification for special education and gifted programs, extracurricular and co-curricular involvement, tracking, and disciplinary rates showing disproportionate disadvantages to students of color. This article identifies the primary targets of racial harassment in school, issues of ethnic groups, and psycho-environmental concerns that affect the service delivery and practice of today's school counselor.
