An Analysis of the( (MS)²) Program from Early African American Scholars' Perspectives: One Program Aimed at Improving African American Students' Achievement in Mathematics and Science Related Fields

Abstract:

Quality education for African Americans particularly in the area of mathematics and science, continues to be an unresolved issue in the United States (Campbell, 2000). The consequence of not having a good education can be detrimental, whether in science, mathematics, or otherwise. Education influences the type of job a person receives, or if one even receives employment. It can make the difference between empowerment and dis-empowerment (Wilson, 1997, Kozol, 1991).
This proposed research, an extension of my dissertation study, explores aspects of the early history of the Mathematics and Science for Minority Students (MS)² Program and examines Phillips Academy’s aim of improving African American scholars’ chances of pursuing and achieving a mathematics and science career (Beckham, 2006). The central question to be investigated is: What happened in this program to cause it to be a vehicle for African American achievement in science fields? This investigation explores the experiences of some of the earliest scholars in the program. Early on the (MS)² Program was primarily an initiative for African American students.
