Race Cannot Be Ignored In Closing The Achievement Gap In Public Education

Posted by DallasBlackBlog on Sunday, September 16, 2007

Narrowing the achievement gap in schools requires acknowledging race, not ignoring it.

September 16, 2007

The achievement gap between African American and Latino students and their white peers is stark and persistent. It has existed for decades, and it’s growing more pronounced. The data refute what would be reassuring explanations. The gaps in reading and math test scores are not due to income disparities, nor are they attributable to parents’ educational levels. The simple fact is that most black and brown children do not do as well in school as most whites.

The data also show, however, that African American and Latino children are excelling in schools scattered throughout California and the nation, suggesting that the achievement gap is not intractable. Rather, there is a profound disconnect between what we say are high expectations for children of color and the quality of education delivered to them in the classroom.

All of which leads to an uncomfortable but important conclusion: If a less-stratified society is desirable, we must be prepared to design educational programs that explicitly take race into account, that address African American and Latino students specifically and that openly recognize that we are not a single society when it comes to the needs of our children.

Bob Johnson

Detroit, MI (BlackNews.com) – The first Black Billionaire, Bob Johnson, Founder of BET and The RLJ Companies, has provided the Foreword for the Book My Conversations with Black Millionaire Entrepreneurs. The book is a compilation of interviews of some of Black America’s most successful Entrepreneurs.

Here is an excerpt of what Mr. Johnson’s Foreword says, “In My Conversations with Black Millionaire Entrepreneurs you’ll get real life changing information from some of the most successful black entrepreneurs in America today. All in one source, all at the same time. Although I didn’t have a book like this when I started, I believe it is a valuable resource for those who are striving to become successful entrepreneurs.”

When asked about the importance of Bob Johnson being involved Bro. Bedford the book’s author and founder of How To Be A Black Entrepreneur.com said, “This is just a wonderful day, a couple of weeks ago Russell Simmons endorsed what we are doing and now to have a giant like Bob Johnson involved just proves that the message of Black empowerment and Black Entrepreneurship is resonating with Black people. There are some others who are coming on board very soon and we’ll be sure to announce them. I feel Truly Blessed.”

Conversations with Black Millionaire Entrepreneurs is literally sprouting entrepreneurs all over the world and is helping to give clarity to entrepreneurs who have stalled in their endeavors.

The book is available for immediate download at: www.conversationswithblackmillionaires.com

About The Author

Bro. Bedford has been providing information on Entrepreneurship and Investment/Finance in his free e-zine that goes out weekly to over 2,000 subscribers worldwide. To subscribe and have access to this vital information go to www.howtobeablackentrepreneur.com
