Black Boys and Learning Posted on 04-08-2010

KiarraLynn
St. Louis, , MO

I was just thinking about the lecture Dr. Jawanza Kunjufu had done in the 1980's about instituionalized racism. I wanted to know your thoughts on schools and whether or not they are failing our young Black males. Do you feel that young Black males have a different learning style that our schools are not meeting? Are there any other problems that need to be solved or have schools improved in their method of teaching children of color? You can share your personal experiences, comments, or solutions.

I don't believe we as black people have a different style of learning as a whole. What I do see and understand about our education is that we live in low-class communities, communities of poverty, and in these kind of communities finacial funds, from state or government, for schools is very insufficient. Yes we can get the same level of education as the upper-class communities if we can afford to either move in such a community in order for our young children to go to school there and afford to pay for college in such communities. "How many of us can afford to keep up with the Jones???" Therefor, we are faced with going to school in our own communities. Schools that has 30-40 students per teacher, schools that have a limited supply of computers and books, schools that lack funding, schools that can't afford updated books so they use books from a couple or few years back. Look at Baltimore school system. It is sad. Also we as a people must take responsability in our own education. We need to start being more active in our children's education and stop putting the stress and pushing the blame of failure to our schools. It must start with us because if we wait for the state or government to finance our schools we will be a lost nation of people.

Statistics alone can answer your question. There are so many Young New Afrikan malez locked down. All of this began after the Civil War, and during Reconstruction, look back when all the prisonz were built. Black Codes, look when the 13th Amendment was ratified and what it readz. Thanks 4 shining light on this. 1Luv.

Peace: Heroes & Nation Building. We know who the govt teaches about (MLK & Rosa Parks). But Who should we teach about? http://blackhomeschoolacademy.wordpress.com/ten-black-heroes/
Do we teach our boys to be men? Do we know wat it means to be men? -it is no wonder they reject Euro-centric Education.
Peace
