Item description for Black Students, White Schools- Caught Between Two Worlds by Noah Tennant...

This study explores the experiences of eight black students in a predominantly white, affluent, suburban high school. The investigation examines the obstacles that impede the educational paths and mar the personal experiences of these students. But more importantly, it seeks to uncover the organizational factors of the institution and/or the personal traits of the students that make it possible for these black students to have successful educational experiences despite the many challenges they face. These are eight young men and women who demonstrate resilience in their young lives. This study of their experiences examines the building blocks of that resilience. It uncovers why they are able to achieve despite the array of psychological, social, and educational obstacles they encounter everyday in their high school. Readers may see reflections of themselves or their students or their children in the struggles of these eight students. To see them in their honors and advanced placement classes . . . to see them walking through the hallways juxtaposed against the backdrop of the white school - readers gain a better understanding of how these students are forced to grapple and ultimately tame two different worlds.

Reviews - What do customers think about Black Students, White Schools- Caught Between Two Worlds?

Must read for teachers and students!  Jan 6, 2008
This book is very well written and insightful. It is evident that Mr. Tennant spent a great amount of research and time understanding the challenges and environments each one of these (8) students has overcome in their daily struggle to be both accepted and educated. This book also stresses the importance of our teachers. Teachers are one of the most important, yet underappreciated, professions in this country because of the daily access and influence they have on our children. However, despite this burden teachers must find a way to associate with their students and allow them to feel comfortable in a positive and rewarding educational environment. Our future and theirs depends on it.
