Mustaffa, Jalil B. – Educational Foundations, 2021
I first describe the Black scholarly dilemma to set up the reader for how spirit murder happens subtly and the ways, I argue, centering Black life can restore our spirits. Through meditating on the existing literature, I argue that exclusion and marginalization are not the primary indicators of spirit murder in the education field or the academy.…

Wilson, Asif – Educational Foundations, 2021
Black, Indigenous, and other students of color (BIPOC) are selecting to attend community colleges more than any other post-secondary school setting.

Crawford, Tanya T.; Bohan, Chara Haeussler – Educational Foundations, 2019
Six years after "Brown v. Board of Education", Atlanta reluctantly complied with the order to desegregate its school system rather than risk having schools closed due to noncompliance. Out of 132 students, nine black high school seniors desegregated four of Atlanta's all-white high schools. The purpose of this study is to explore and…

Walker, Larry J.; Goings, Ramon B.; Wilkerson, Reginald D. – Educational Foundations, 2019
Nationally Black males comprise less than 2% of public school teachers. The startling figure is not sustainable in a diverse society. Increasingly researchers have focused on the experiences of Black male inservice teachers. However, there is scant research that investigates the role school administrators in urban, suburban, and rural districts…

Ottley, Jason A.; Ellis, Antonio L. – Educational Foundations, 2014
In this article, we show that the retention and graduation rate of Black male students at institutions of higher education is dismal when compared to other groups. Approximately, 30% of Black college males who enroll in a four-year institution earn a college degree compared to 57% of White male students (Bohrnstedt et al., 2015). Black men find it…

McCarther, Shirley Marie; Davis, Donna M.; Caruthers, Loyce – Educational Foundations, 2012
It was the second week in October, 2010. This year was like many in the past, where for decades, everyone convenes to continue traditions and preparations that have centered on a single, special event. This special event or celebration contextualizes the academic and social experiences of successful graduates of one HBCU located in Jefferson City,…

Reynolds, Lacey; Fisher, Dwalah; Cavil, J. Kenyatta – Educational Foundations, 2012
Since the passage of Proposition 48 (NCAA, 1984), African-American student-athletes entering National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) major colleges and universities have meet new challenges in their future as student-athletes. This major change altered the landscape of the future of college athletics particularly for students of color.…

Brown, Keffrelyn D.; Brown, Anthony L. – Educational Foundations, 2012
Drawing from Michel Foucault's notion of "useful" and "dangerous" discourse coupled with the theory of racial knowledge, this article examines how two common counter-discourses about African-American students operate and create racial knowledge in education practice. By "counter-discourse", the authors refer to knowledge, theories, and histories…

Martin, Danny Bernard – Educational Foundations, 2012
While research by scholars has contributed greatly to an emerging knowledge base on Black children and mathematics, there continues to be a dire need for insightful research that de-centers longstanding accounts that have contributed to the construction of Black children as mathematically illiterate and as less than ideal learners relative to…

Howard, Tyrone C.; Flennaugh, Terry K.; Terry, Clarence L., Sr. – Educational Foundations, 2012
Throughout the history of the U.S., racialized groups have often had their experiences profoundly shaped by social imagery in ways that have created tremendous hardships in the quest for self-actualization and a healthy sense of self. The purpose of this article is to shed light on the manner in which Black males have been one of the primary…

Harper, Shaun R.; Davis, Charles H. F., III – Educational Foundations, 2012
Little is known about Black male students who graduate from high school, enroll in college, aspire to earn degrees beyond the baccalaureate, and espouse commitments to various career pathways in the field of education (teaching, school administration, education research, the professoriate, education policy, and so forth). What compels these men to…

Gold, Moniqueka E.; Richards, Heraldo – Educational Foundations, 2012
Over the years, the benefits of categorically identifying and labeling students with disabilities have been debated on many grounds, particularly when it comes to labeling African-American children who many argue are over-labeled or disproportionately represented in selected categories such as learning disabilities. In this article, the authors…

Carter, Dorinda J. – Educational Foundations, 2008
In the field of education, much of the research on Black student achievement focuses on cultural and/or structural explanations for the academic outcomes of these adolescents. A vast amount of the research on Black student achievement perpetuates a continuous discussion of Black underachievement. Race continues to remain central across discussions…

Carter, Norvella P.; Hawkins, Torrance N.; Natesan, Prathiba – Educational Foundations, 2008
Since its inception, the United States has struggled with its responsibility for educating African American students. Its history of denial and discrimination in the education of Black children has created a national crisis in which academic difficulty and school failure is disproportionately high. In an effort to improve the education of African…
