Black power/white power in public education by Ralph Edwards( )

6 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,049 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores the dynamics of power among racial groups in the local community as they struggle for the fulfillment of their unique and joint goals through public education. Case studies of two educational issues are analyzed in this book. One has to do with the hiring and firing of the first black superintendent of the Boston (Massachusetts) public schools, and the other explores the campaign to transform the Boston school committee from an elected to an appointed organization. These case studies are prototypes of educational issues faced by many communities. In 1985, Laval Wilson became Boston's first African American superintendent of schools, only to be dismissed in 1990. In this situation, black leaders in the Search Committee acknowledged that they represented different constituencies among people of color and did not attempt to act as a unified group. In winning Laval's appointment, the efforts of blacks were complemented by people from other ethnic communities. When Boston's 13-member school committee was abolished, with the proposal that it be replaced by an elected 7-member board, the blacks in cooperation with working-class neighborhoods of Irish and Italian voters almost derailed the movement to change the way the school committee was selected. Because these groups did not establish a coalition, they were ultimately defeated, and the Governor signed a bill that resulted in an appointed school board. This book describes how dominant and subdominant population groups win and lose in the community power game of public education. A list of 84 sources for further reading is provided. Each chapter contains references. (Sld)

5 editions published in 1978 in English and Undetermined and held by 537 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is compiled from revised versions of papers presented at the Black College Conference, held at Harvard University in 1976. The papers present a comprehensive analysis of what black colleges have done for themselves and for the nation and define the purposes and goals of education from the perspective of a black minority that is preparing young people for survival in a society dominated by a white majority. The book is divided into three sections: (1) the history and purpose of black colleges; (2) their administration, financing, and governance; and (3) teaching and learning in black colleges. Among the specific topics that are addressed are: (1) the historical and socio-ethical roles and responsibilities of the black colleges and their graduates; (2) the priorities of presidents of black colleges; (3) black colleges of the North; (4) the board of trustees and the black college; (5) interactions between black college faculty and their students; (6) teaching and learning in the social sciences, English, and the humanities; and (7) the performance of black students in the sciences at Spelman College, Atlanta, Georgia.

The sociology of urban education : desegregation and integration by Charles Vert Willie( Book )

9 editions published between 1978 and 1979 in English and held by 514 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, the problems of racial segregation and desegregation in urban schools and colleges are discussed in light of cultural, biological, and social questions. Part I explores various issues in urban education, such as racial balance and quality education, white flight, community control, the city-suburban connection, education for the disadvantaged and race-related behavior. Part ii investigates educational planning and policy-making, including basic features of a school desegregation plan, school desegregation and public policy (in Boston) and planning for school and community change. In Part iii, the integration of two elementary and junior high schools and the role of teacher and principal in the integration are described. Part iv deals with integration in colleges and universities, analyzing the social life of black students at white colleges, adaptation styles of black college students, affirmative action (faculty and staff), and the "American Dream." After describing the history, legislation and the various repercussions associated with different aspects of educational change and desegregation, the author concludes that minorities are "creative dissenters who increase our ethical stature and keep alive the vision of justice for all."

The ivory and ebony towers : race relations and higher education by Charles Vert Willie( Book )

6 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The adaptations of black and of white students to each other and to their teachers and administrators in institutions of higher education are compared. Complementarity is the basic theme. Examples demonstrate the principle that the majority population that is educated in a setting that excludes the minority receives a deficient education, and vice versa. Part I, "Philosophy of Education: Goal, Purpose, Method," discusses inclusiveness, desegregation, and whites as a minority. Part ii, "Recruitment, Admissions, and Retention," examines recruitment of black students, standardized testing for admissions, selection of a diversified student body, and enrollment and retention of black students. In Part iii, "Black Students and White Students," focus is on black students in black colleges and in white colleges, and white students in black colleges. Part iv, "Black Colleges and White Colleges," examines characteristics of faculties in predominantly black and predominantly white colleges and the function and future of black colleges and universities. Black studies and group names, labels, and stereotypes in educational materials are discussed in Part v, "The Curriculum and Educational Materials. Part vi, "Administrative Issues and Actions: Internal and External Concerns," examines the student personnel administration, ethical and moral responsibility of the schools, and offers a tribute to teacher/administrator Benjamin Elijah Mays. The final section discusses the future of desegregated higher education, including the conclusion that postsecondary institutions will not be able to hold their current ideal of exclusivity. Tables include: uncertainties of whites on black campuses; positive experiences of white on black campuses; characteristics of predominately black and predominately white institutions; types of institutions from which faculty members received degrees; highest degree level of faculty members at predominately black colleges and predominately white colleges; and highest degree level of faculty members by city.
