This book by Dr. Janice E. Hale from John Hopkins Press is now in a revised paperback edition. “American educators have largely failed to recognize the crucial significance of culture in the education of African-American children contends Janice E. Hale…..As African-American children are acculturated at home and in the African-American community they develop cognitive patterns and behaviors that may prove incompatible with the school environment….Drawing on the fields of anthropology sociology history and psychology Hale explores the effects of African-American culture on a child’s intellectual development and suggests curricular reforms that would allow African-American children to develop their intelligence pursue their strengths and succeed in school and at work.” (publishers) 216 pages.
