|Walking down the hallways at Hillside Middle school, I hear the taunts the students give each other every day. I see the remnants of a culture never identified or taught in our public school system. In this study, I analyze the different stages of identity, specifically as it relates to black youth and their development in the public schools. No Child Left Behind was supposed to help address the reasons why there was/still continues to be an achievement gap between black students and white students, but it failed to recognize a key factor to the problem. How a child views himself plays a big role in how successful they will be.
