Titel: Organizational Characteristics of Schools That Successfully Serve Low-Income Urban African American Students
Auteur: Cole-Henderson, Beverly
Verschenen in: Journal of education for students placed at risk
Paginering: Jaargang 5 (2000) nr. 1-2 pagina's 77-91
Jaar: 2000-04-01
Inhoud: A prerequisite for correcting ineffective education is the examination of research on the learning environments of successful schools and the conditions and processes that enable quality outcomes. The research described in this article supports the Talent Development philosophy, which rejects deficit-based "talent sorting" models of schooling and promotes widespread academic success in appropriately supportive environments. The study delineates the common organizational characteristics of schools in low-income areas that defy the odds by producing high numbers of high-achieving African American students. Specifically, it explores how urban elementary schools that successfully serve primarily low-income African American students are configured to support students' academic and personal growth. Participating schools were selected based on test scores evidencing their students' sustained mathematics and reading achievement. The data for the analysis was obtained from questionnaires mailed to the schools' principals. Patterns in the data and discernable trends across schools are described.
