History of Culture
Exclusion more than inclusion reflects African American culture in education. As mentioned in many sections above, African Americans have suffered from discrimination, belittling, racial ridicule, and from the beginning the exclusion from education. Due to the view of African Americans, from slavery to discrimination, education was a huge issue and being exposed to the same opportunities of others. It was a struggle for the culture for many years with acceptance and it still exists today. African Americans still today fight for equal accessibility to appropriate education. As mentioned above, there exists an achievement gap between minorities and other cultures due to the lack of studies and practices that develop critical thinking skills for live. Currently practices and programs like full inclusion work to not only factor in cultural and economic differences but also educational.
