    Do African Centered Schools and HBCUs Really Prepare Students For The "Real World"?

    in Women

    Historically Black Colleges and Universities have been under attack for decades, accused of being "unnecessary" in this supposedly "color blind" society. Many such schools, founded after Emancipation and providing that much needed boost for African Americans who had been deprived of education for generations, are now struggling with underfunding and lack of financial support. Likewise, many African Centered grammar schools and even some high schools, founded during the movement for black empowerment, have struggled to remain alive, also lacking the financial support to maintain dedicated teachers and quality programs.  Makita Kheperu, Chief Education officer at Betty Shabazz International Charter School and graduate of Howard University, examines the need for  education based on history culture and a collective goal for achievement as provided by institutions that stress pride in racial heritage. As a former school principal, classroom teacher and a parent of two children attending the PUSH Excel HBCU Tour during this Spring Break, she discusses the effects of culturally based education on preparing African American students to succeed in the "real world."

    What Are The Positives of An African-Centered Education?

    in Education

    A Conversation With Dr. Carol D. Lee: What Are The Positives of An African-Centered Education?
    In Chicago 1969, Lee and her husband helped to found the Institute of Positive Education. This community-based, African-centered organization sponsored seminars on issues with which the black community wrestled, and it held classes, ran a food co-op and farm, and published a magazine and pamphlets.
    In 1972, under Lee’s direction, the institute even began its own school, New Concept Development Center, which started as a Saturday program and expanded into a full-fledged school by 1974. Both the institute and New Concept Development Center still operate today, not to mention the three charter schools in Chicago that Lee also cofounded: the Betty Shabazz International Charter School, the Barbara A. Sizemore Academy, and the DuSable Leadership Academy.
    African-centered schools, such as New Concept and the Betty Shabazz International Charter School campuses, take an expansive view of cultures, Lee says.
    Lee received her PhD in education from the University of Chicago in 1991 and currently is a professor in the Learning Sciences Program of the School of Education and Social Policy with a joint appointment in African American studies, both at Northwestern University. She is also well known for her “cultural modeling” theory, which provides a framework for the design of instruction in ways that leverage everyday knowledge of youth, especially youth of color, to support discipline specific learning. One goal is to use the everyday knowledge of these students to teach vital concepts.
