Reflections on Multiculturalism, Social Justice, And Empowerment Groups for Academic Success: A Critical Discourse for Contemporary Schools (Extended DISCUSSION)

Writing the article entitled “Empowerment Groups for Academic Success: An Innovative Approach to Prevent High School Failure for At-Risk, Urban African American Girls,” I anticipated that there would be mixed reactions, given the unique and nontraditional approach to working with a difficult and typically underserved population.

Although most of the responses supported these notions, there was some questioning and skepticism about actually implementing an approach of this nature in real practice. I would therefore like to begin this rejoinder by addressing five key issues that impede doing effective work with at-risk and marginalized students similar to the student population that was presented in the EGAS article in order to establish a framework for more direct reactions to my colleagues’ responses regarding the EGAS approach.
