audio description
In this audio recording, Joann Ross speaks on the difficulties of being black in the education system. Ross discusses the problem of the “Black Syndrome,” the assumption that black children are not as high of achievers as the rest of the children in the education system. She urges teachers to evaluate themselves each year to determine if they are effective in reaching all students. Ross closes by discussing innovative educational practices among college and university campuses.
