Dr. Asa G. Hilliard III: Trumpeter for the Academic and Cultural Excellence of African American Children
Lemons-Smith, Shonda
Review of Educational Research, v78 n4 p908-920 Dec 2008
This article explores the scholarship of Asa G. Hilliard III on the theme of student academic and cultural excellence and the development of teachers. Throughout his career, Hilliard questioned the nation's commitment to ensuring the academic success of all children. The premise "Do we have the will to educate all children?" is reflected throughout his work, and it is the central theme of this article. Specifically, in selected examples of his scholarship, the article highlights Hilliard's ideas on the psychological paradigm shift required for schools and teachers to "release the genius" of every child. His vision is considered within the context of traditional notions of effective teachers and teaching. Although the article primarily focuses on education broadly, select aspects of Hilliard's work relative to mathematics education are underscored as well. (Contains 1 note.)
