THE FIELDS SCHOOL: An African American School Without Failures
A Case study of a School in Rural Alabama which served a Community of African American Children from 1933-1949
In a time when schools are failing our children, especially African Americans, could it be that taking a careful look at schools, including schools attended solely by African Americans, that were effective in the past, provide insight into why schools are failing today and empower the educational system to operate schools without failures?
One such school, worthy of examination, is the Fields School which served African American Children from 1933-1949. Over three-quarters of the sample subjects attending this school had completed a bachelor's degree. Of these, over half, had completed some graduate work, one-third had master's degrees, one a doctoral degree and one a law degree. The author's first eight years of schooling was at this school.
The Fields School has been meticulously researched. A personal interview was had with eighty percent of the students and fifty percent of the teachers who taught at the school during the period it existed in the 1930s and 1940s.
