Parent involvement in the Head Start Policy Committee from an insider's perception: empowerment or rhetoric? by Angela Ramirez( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Parent Involvement is a vital component to the success of children academically but also the success of schools and communities. Head Start has the prestige of being the first program to value the importance of parent involvement. Parent involvement has many sub-categories that must be analyzed in order to document the success of the involvement of parents. In this study, the focus is how parent's participation in a shared-decision/governance partnership is empowering for parents and does the participation of parents produced outcomes that match the expectations of the Head Start philosophy. The results of this study suggest that parents who participated in their Head Start program's Policy Committee had not met the standards required from the Head Start program
School achievement and family involvement of African American male students in elementary school by Gwendolyn Louise Hamilton( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

African American male students in particular have the greatest challenges within school the school system (Fremon & Hamilton, 1997). These students need patient teachers and family members to assist them in the learning process to ensure they stay motivated in school. These students have the highest incidence of high school dropout. And while some even drop out in middle school, disengagement in the learning process often begins as early as elementary school. Policymakers need to provide special programs for these students to help them accelerate in the academic environment as well as to encourage them to progress to secondary and postsecondary institutions. The classrooms are filled with students who fail to meet academic standards. Race, class, and gender all play a part in contributing to the increase in the achievement gap between White and Black students. Sources of Data Six students were surveyed to determine if they were getting the assistance needed to thrive in school. Data from the survey assessed whether or not the students felt they received adequate supplemental school and home support to be successful in school. Conclusions Reached The results of the study determined that although students possessed the academic tools to adequately succeed in school, they needed the approval of their teacher to be successful, and wanted access to personal tutoring or group tutoring

Effective pedagogical practices for teaching African American students in a K-8 urban charter school by Patricia Ann Garrity( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Current research on educational achievement in the United States shows that African American students in urban areas are performing well below their White counterparts (Lewis, James, Hancock, & Hill-Jackson, 2008). However, studies have been conducted that point to teacher effectiveness (Howard, 2001), culturally relevant pedagogy (Ladson-Billings, 1995), and culturally responsive teaching (Foster & Peele, 2001) as effective ways to close this achievement gap between Black and White students. Based on the theoretical frames that support a reformed Afrocentric pedagogy (Ginwright, 2004) and culturally relevant pedagogy (Ladson-Billings, 1995) the present study explores potential ways to help struggling African American students and improve the existing academic condition of elementary and middle school-aged African American students attending school in low-income, urban areas. The study was conducted in the form of action research (Mertler, 2007) at the predominantly African American urban charter school where the researcher teaches. The research study also employed qualitative research methods, such as an open-ended survey and a focus group. The methods asked students, parents, and teachers invested in the urban charter school to reflect on their educational experiences and challenges, and describe practices that help to best educate the students at the school. Results from the survey and focus group revealed that parents, teachers, and students faced many of the same educational challenges (where the students were concerned), including a lack of focus, and difficulty understanding and retaining information. The three subgroups also overlapped responses where best practices were concerned, and these included, but were not limited to, one-on one teaching, the use of song, visuals, and other stimulating activities, and the workshop or small group model. Supported by the responses from the open-ended survey and focus group, as well as standardized test data from the charter school, a positive relationship between the practices discussed and the academic achievement of African American students at the urban charter school exists, and should continue to be explored
African American males : historical struggles of African Americans in education and the utilization of a culturally responsive pedagogy to close the achievement gap by Victoria Elizabeth Carr( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

It is evident that there is a serious problem, beginning in elementary school, with the lack of success for African-American males. In addition, African-American males are not able to compete with their peers academically due to the fact that many of them are not attending and/or graduating college. The question now, and has been for a while is, how do we fix this? Hopefully through this study, a light will be shown on possible causes for these disparities and potential solutions that could help make a difference for the young African-American males currently attending school. This thesis is oriented towards conducting a survey of African American males' responses to education for the past five decades. The struggle for their equality in education resulted in the acquisition of a vast amount of knowledge that can be utilized to close the achievement gap in contemporary society. To help African American males succeed, the following things need to be in place: the utilization of culturally responsive teaching in the classroom, parent involvement, teachers must have high expectations, African American males need positive role models, and teachers must know the students they are teaching
