My single mother...went back to school got a degree, worked full time and still had time to decorate the whole kitchen with learning/teaching posters to drill us while she cooked dinner.
Teaching really does start at home. Kids are always learning and picking up on everything we do.

The smarter child is the one that is smarter.
which is.........
 

I think you are missing my point


I am missing the point entirely
   my point is they are both at the starting point of their education.  Neither one has yet to "fall" behind due to familial, social, or economical factors which may play into their stagnation later in life

Actually, first grade they're already behind.

Studies show that preschool children of higher income have a vocabulary that is on average larger and more complex (like 5-10 larger) than preschool children of lower income. And studies show that those same children of higher income have vocabs larger and more complex than the parents of the low income children.

Add issues of in-utero stress and health, stress, bad nutrition, environmental factors (pollution, danger, fear, domestic violence, mental health, insecure attachment, etc.). 

The playing field is never level and most children in poverty are already wayyyyyy far behind compared to their peers with higher incomes.
well goddam!!Shocked
 
@ jones & msW, the mandatory starting point is 1st grade, but I see what yall are saying.  Learning DOES start in the home, as pointed out by Maysay above
 
@ Samone, yes ur right.  That's what I meant.  They dropped the expectations for us cuz in their mind, not enough of us are as smart as the other races

and not for nothing, I have seen the way some parents speak, they see nothing wrong with it.  The kids pick it up, they see nothing wrong with it.  wash, rinse, repeat.
 
If nobody is there to correct you, you'll continue to do the wrong thing

Agreed.
I remember getting popped in the mouth for saying my bad instead of I'm sorry or I apologize.

I didn't read all of the comments but was it said that kids from single family households are usually on the same academic level as one from dual parent homes?
 
I'm talking about the rule, not the exception..

And while what he said was very demoralizing as well as very myopic, I will say that the Black American community is still, in large part, very oriented around survival instead of success.
 
Even at the collegiate level, the goal of too many Black students is to graduate, instead of graduating with honors, preparing for graduate school and/or landing a job after graduation.

Aunt B always provides profundity.  Do you think it's bc many are first generation so just getting through is an accomplishment? Why do those at the collegiate level just want to get out? Disillusion?
 
Aww thanks. There are a number of factors, and yes, being first in family without having a parent or older family member to turn to for guidance can be very daunting. Many of our students don't know the appropriate ways to navigate college and often don't ask for help.
 
I was writing this and someone came in spilling major tea. I will edit this once I get my mind clear.
