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

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

Parent involvement in the Head Start Policy Committee from an insider's perception: empowerment or rhetoric? by Ángela Ramírez ( 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
