Abstract:

As the population begin to shift and people of color come closer to becoming the majority and as the United States faces additional concerns in education and particularly in terms of science and mathematics, there will be an even greater need to attract and retain more persons of color like African Americans in STEM areas. This paper looks at the experiences of African Americans and students of color while they were in high school. Through their experiences, it examines some of the problems and challenges in urban schools today. This paper also looks at specific challenges related to science and mathematics classrooms and explores what schools can do to foster a more enriching and caring environment for Black and other students of color interested in STEM careers. This paper takes a critical race theory perspective and specifically focuses on the use of counter narratives to shed light on this evolving concern within the United States.
