Dr. Eddie Taylor

African Americans and Standardized Tests: The Real Reason for Low Test Scores

Veda Jairrels

African Americans and Standardized Tests: The Real Reason for Low Test Scores by Veda JairrelsWith a surprisingly honest and hard-hitting approach, this scathing indictment of the modern black family postulates that a lack of appreciation for literacy in the African American household is the true cause of low scores on today's standardized tests. Arguing that television, video games, rap music, and sports are all distractions from much-needed study time, the discussion stresses the significance of literacy in a child's future and the importance of parental involvement toward shaping that future. In an educational climate where most of the blame for a child's poor performance is placed...

An African Centered Response to Ruby Payne's Poverty Theory

Jawanza Kunjufu

An African Centered Response to Ruby Payne's Poverty Theory by Jawanza KunjufuThis challenge to influential educator Ruby Payne's theories about the impact of class differences and economics on teaching and learning puts forward other factors as better predictors of student performance.
