EDUCATING THE BLACK MALE: RENEWED IMPERATIVES FOR TEACHER EDUCATION
Abstract:Learning theories have been used consistently as guiding principles in educational programs for normal and atypical students. Often these theories have lacked relevance for blacks and other minorities because of their failure to address culture, language, and diversity in learning styles found in our changing world. The impact of these theories and their implications for black males cannot be ignored. The problems of black males are multidimensional, and cannot be divorced from the roots of the black community and mainstream America. Solutions to these problems are prime responsibilities of black and white communities. In this article, the author analyzes the learning processes – cognitive, affective, and behavioral attributes with respect to their impact on the black male.
