Über diesen Titel
Education enables a particular culture to maintain its own set of skills, technology and value systems for dealing with the socio-political and economic necessities of life. To make life more meaningful, any particular group’s learning and teaching approaches should not be devoid of the group’s surroundings. Ceteris paribus, Blacks should be applauded, not despised, for developing ways that will make them better students and teachers to sustain their immediate community and the United States.
We are ipssisima verba with Asante, the architect of Afrocentricity, who maintains that: African American children can learn and are committed to the principles of teaching and educating that will affirm the existence of children who will reach the highest heights if they are met with concrete examples of care and concern...Furthermore, we have seen our children learn to a greater degree than many thought possible in schools that have adopted an Afrocentric curriculum and pedagogy.
Independent Black Institutions, as we see them today, are somewhat different from the traditional private schools, in that the IBIs develop their curriculum from an African-centered perspective. This is a perspective that emanates from the heritage of the people and one that responds to the needs of the community.
Indubitably, America’s inner-city public school systems have failed too many Black children. This volume offers an alternative approach to educating Black children in, especially, our urban centers. We hope that this book will provide an eminent challenge to students, teachers, and educators, who interact with and teach Black children, to develop and sustain a successful Africana personality that is not alienated from the walls of the American school system.About the Author:
