The Gathering of Leaders
A CONTEMPLATION OF EDUCATING THE BLACK MALE YOUTH
JUNE 5, 2007 WHEELOCK COLLEGE Brookline, MA
FACT: Only 1 in 40 Black Males make it to college.
On June 5th I attended a seminar at Wheelock College. The topic for discussion was Black male schools educating the Black Male Youth.
Single sex environment
Male learning styles needed
Positive role models
Diverse teachers with compassion
Quality teachers/recruit and retain
Cultural history needs to be built into curriculum
Because there is compelling data
Because of misdiagnosis of Black males (e.g., special ed track)
