Overview for “Step Inside”: Think about a person or an object that is a part or connected to the event or situation you are examining. Place yourself within the event or situation to see things from this point of view.

The purpose of this activity is to:

  • Provide a structure for perspective taking.
  • Develop an empathetic response to another viewpoint.
  • Help to understand that one’s perspective often shapes how events are understood

 

At this point in the course, I’m sure you recognize the importance of trying to examine an issue from different angles. This time, we’re examining African-American history – specifically related to public policy.

First, please review the NEA link I provided. I also posted here: http://www.nea.org/home/15215.htm

Blacks: Education Issues

The Black community faces educational issues similar to other minority groups, including the need for adequate funding for schools serving minority and disadvantaged students, as well as other issues with a special impact on the community:

  • Student achievement gaps need to be aggressively addressed. For example, the percentage of Blacks age 25 and older with a high school diploma or more was 72 percent in the 2000 census, compared to 85.5 percent for Whites. In addtion, the percentage of Blacks with bachelor’s degrees or more was 14 percent, compared to 27 percent of Whites.
  • Closing achievement gaps is a critical issue. The performance of Blacks is systematically different from that of other racial and ethnic groups. Decreasing gaps in student achievement means that we must increase the learning gains of Blacks. This will require the creation of public policies and legislation that support public schools committed to identifying and setting high, worthwhile, and attainable goals for students and ensuring that teachers and students are supported in these efforts. It will also require meaningful collaboration among community organizations and leaders, parents, and the school. The success of the school must become the success of the community.
  • There is a need to increase diversity and cultural competence in the teaching workforce. Recruiting and retaining teachers of color is important, as some children of color will go through their entire educational career without having a teacher who looks like them or who can identify with the uniqueness of their cultural heritage.
  • Adequate and equitable resources are important to the future success and development of Black students. Far too often, Black students—males in particular—are unnecessarily placed in special education classes, while the number of Black students who take honors and advanced courses remains significantly below that of other groups. School funding structures that lead to under-funding and under-resourcing our neediest schools have furthered the achievement gaps. All students deserve a quality public education, and this can only occur when we close the gaps in equity and access.

Third, you are going to consider HISTORICALLY the two figures discussed in your text: Booker T. Washington and W.E.B. Du Bois.

Be sure to answer all questions fully and to use support from the text. For example, do not answer vaguely (ex: Du Bois cared about Black education). Be specific so I know you have a deeper understanding of each person’s beliefs.

 

BOOKER T. WASHINGTON:

 

·         What can this person or thing see, observe or notice?

·         What might the person or thing know, understand, hold true, or believe?

·         What might the person or thing care deeply about?

·         What might the person or thing wonder about or question?

 

 

W.E.B. DU BOIS:

 

·         What can this person or thing see, observe or notice?

·         What might the person or thing know, understand, hold true, or believe?

·         What might the person or thing care deeply about?

·         What might the person or thing wonder about or question?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fourth, please go online and locate information about Reverend al Sharptonwho you believe has been influential in African-American Education and public policy. You’ll have to do some research on this– find someone that you feel has made a substantial impact (and you must choose someone who is NOT covered in your textbook). Consider the fact that “an impact” can be positive OR negative.

Last, answer the questions based on your chosen person. BE SURE TO CITE ALL SOURCES. Copying and pasting from the Internet is NOT acceptable – paraphrase in your own words.

******************************************************************************
