SILENCE PREVAILS AS SCHOOLS FAIL BLACK STUDENTS - Los Angeles Sentinel. Public schools fail to educate Black students and a prolonged silence of the total community, parents and Black leadership especially, contributes to the problem.


Inequities and near criminal negligence by urban school districts like the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) have virtually ensured that Black students do not receive a quality education. The African American Learners Initiative (2001) was a notable exception; it focused exclusively on LAUSD’s Black students, but out of the public’s eye, the Initiative morphed into the circuitous, “Action Plan for Culturally Relevant Education that Benefits Black Students and All Other Students.” Even this weak substitute for the Initiative was not mandated; essentially, implementation was left up to school principals. The metamorphosis from the African American Initiative to the Action Plan for Black students and adding “….and all other students” was the death knell.
