BSt 516 African American Urban Education Problems

Course examines the education systems in major cities being inherited by African-Americans. The relationship between public and private education will be studied for impacts on African- Americans. Educational system response to African American enrollment will be discussed. Moreover, pertinent literature, e.g., the Coleman Report, Jensen's thesis, and others will be introduced with respect to their overall effect on the curricula available to the African American child. Topics of concern include community control, citizen involvement, alternative education forms, race relations, faculty-staff responses, modern trends, etc.
