Mo' Money, Mo' Problems? High-Achieving Black High School Students' Experiences with Resources, Racial Climate, and Resilience
Allen, Walter; Griffin, Kimberly
Journal of Negro Education, v75 n3 p478-494 Sum 2006
A multi-site case study analyzed the college preparatory processes of nine African American high achievers attending a well-resourced, suburban high school and eight academically successful African Americans attending a low-resourced urban school. Students at both schools experienced barriers, that is, racial climate and a lack of resources, that inhibited their college preparation, but despite these obstacles, participants demonstrated resiliency, which kept them focused on their educational goals and desire to attend college.
