Ten Vital Principles for Black Education and Socialization
 
1.
 
We exist as African people, an ethnic family. Our perspective must be centered in that reality.
2.
 
The priority is on the African ethnic Family over the Individual. Because we live in a worldwhere expertness in alien cultural traditions (that we also share) have gained hegemony, ourcollective survival and enhancement must be our highest priorities.
3.
 
Some solutions to problems that we will identify will involve differential use of three modesof response to domination and hegemony: a)
Adaptation
 — 
adopting what is deemed useful, b)
 
Improvisation
 — 
substituting or improvising alternatives that are more sensitive to our cultureand c)
Resistance
 — 
resisting that which is destructive and not in the best interests of ourpeople.
4.
The “ways of knowing” provided by the arts and humanities are often more useful in
informing our understanding of our lives and experiences and those of other oppressed peoplethan the knowledge and methodologies of the sciences that have been privileged by the researchestablishment despite the often distorted or circumscribed knowledge and understanding this wayof knowing produces.
5.
Paradoxically, from the perspective of the education research establishment, knowledgeproduction is viewed as the search for
facts and (universal) truth
,
while the circumstancesof our social and existential condition require the
search for meaning and understanding.
 
6.
The priority is on research validity over “inclusion.” For research validity highest priority
must be placed on studies of: a)
African tradition
(history, culture and language), b)
Hegemony
(e.g., uses of schooling/socialization and incarceration), c)
Equity
(funding, teacherquality, content and access to technology) and d)
Beneficial practice
(at all levels of education,from childhood to elderhood).
7.
 
Research informs practice and practice informs research in the production and utilization of knowledge; therefore,
context is essential in research
:
a) Cultural/ historical context, b)Political/economic context and c) Professional context, including the history of AERA andAfrican people.
8.
 
We require power and influence over our common destiny. Rapid
globalization
of theeconomy and
cyber-technology
are transforming teaching, learning and work itself.Therefore, we require access to education that serves our collective interests, includingassessments that address cultural excellence and a comprehensive approach to the interrelatedhealth, learning and economic needs of African people.
