New Journal on African American Education Founded at Wayne State University

The Institute for the Study of the African American Child at Wayne State University in Detroit has announced a new peer-reviewed journal entitled African American Learners. The journal states that it will present “empirical, theoretical, and methodological research and analysis of the home, school, and other environmental factors that impact the learning processes of African American children and adults.” The journal will include scholarly essays, commentaries, curriculum and media reviews, and research briefs. The primary focus will be on K-12 education but there will be special theme issues that deal with higher education topics.
