Teachers and Teaching for the New Millennium: The Role of HBCUs
Irvine, Jacqueline Jordan; Fenwick, Leslie T.
Journal of Negro Education, v80 n3 p197-208 Sum 2011
This article presents a framework for a discussion of the role of historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) that focuses on teachers and teaching for the new millennium. HBCUs have the potential to make a significant difference in solving one of the most intractable problems in K-12 education: how to recruit, retain, and develop teachers for high-need schools. HBCUs are uniquely qualified to address the challenge of high-need schools. If HBCUs' colleges of education are to continue their mission of educating teachers for high-need schools, significant financial resources and other support mechanisms should be available to them. The final segment of the article contains policy recommendations.
