Research Article Analysis
In recent years research has shown among disadvantaged ethic groups in the United States, the neediest and least helped are probably African American males. African American men suffer in variety of areas such as housing, education, health care and employment.
In the peer-review article Understand Black Males it examine that African American males need to have early positive experience within the education environment, that will prepare them to be successful in the academic process. Study shows that most black males do not attend a quality preschool program or participate in early learning opportunities (Mc Call, 1993 p.4.).
This article also explains how "public schools are the first place that many children get the chance to demonstrate mastery and their capability outside of their family environment (Rounds & Bryant, 2008 p. 27)." If African American males are not successful in the classroom most of the time many will drop-out or be incarcerated at a very early age. College and incarceration retention rates point to a miserable plight for many black males.
