SOME BELIEVE THAT BLACK MALES WOULD DO BETTER ACADEMICALLY IF YOU SEPARATE THEM FROM THE FEMALES, BECAUSE IT REDUCES DISTRACTIONS. IN DETROIT, THERE IS A ALL MALE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL CALLED THE MALCOLM X ACADEMY WHO'S STUDENTS STATISTICALLY CARRY A HIGHER GPA THAN OTHER SCHOOLS IN THE DETROIT PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM OF THAT AGE GROUP. UNFORTUNATELY, THE ACADEMY HAS FACED SOME CONTROVERSY. WHITE RESIDENTS IN THE AREA WANTED THE SCHOOL TO BE USED FOR THEIR CHILDREN ( THE BUILDING HAD BEEN EMPTY FOR YEARS BEFORE THEY TRANSFORMED IT INTO THE ACADEMY AND YOU NEVER HEARD A PEEP FROM THOSE PEOPLE ). EVEN MORE UNFORTUNATE, YOU HAD BLACK WOMEN WHO WANTED TO ENROLL THEIR LITTLE GIRLS IN THE SCHOOL, WHICH TOTALLY DEFEATED THE PURPOSE. DO YOU THINK ALL MALE HIGH SCHOOLS WOULD BE SUCCESSFUL?
WHAT DO Y'ALL THINK ABOUT THIS PEEPS?

Love my job!
They have just opened a similar school here in Seattle for girls (primarily black girls) grades K-8 emphasizing math and science. I think we need more schools like them for both sexes.

ARE YOU SERIOUS MAN? THAT WAS A CRAZY *** COMPARISON BRO. WOULD YOU WANT YOUR SON TO GO TO THE MALCOLM X ACADEMY OR TO PRISON TO GET A FORMAL EDUCATION? I USUALLY AGREE WITH WHAT YOU SAY CEDRIC MAN, BUT YOU LOST ME WITH THAT ONE FELLA. :?:


THAT'S MY "BIG" OPINION.

COOL! THE MALCOLM X ACADEMY HAS A LARGELY AFRICAN AMERICAN MALE STAFF ALSO. THIS INSURES THE PRESENCE OF MANY POSITIVE BLACK MALE INFLUENCES.

At first I had my doubts as to the benefits of an "all Black male" school even though I understood the logic behind it. Part of me thinks that having schools like this send the message that boys/men can't function intelligently around girls/women and I wonder if that's a healthy way to raise our youth and message to convey. On the other hand, if you can believe the data that reports the low numbers in test scores and graduation rates among Black boys, it doesn't hurt to help them focus more on their books by isolating them during the day from girls. Girls are only a distraction if you let them be and some of us do thrive off of male attention and go to great lengths to get it. So, if (honest) studies show that Black boys are benefitting from these types of schools and it's not harming them or girls socially as a result, then I'm all in favor of them.

What exactly is your ideology?!
I'll be honest. I like black culture forums, so I've signed up for this one, BX, and Lipstick Alley. I won't post too often, only on things that I'm really interested in. Nice to meet you. :)
