Student-Teacher Relationships in the Eyes of Black Male Students: A Qualitative Inquiry
by Jeffries, Veronica Gina, Ed.D., Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville, 2019, 57; 13864170
Abstract (Summary)

This is a qualitative phenomenological study that examines student-teacher relationships of Black male students. The purpose of this qualitative study was to explore the experiences of Black male students to get a better understanding of how these relationships play a role in their educational experiences. The study explores these relationship experiences through the theoretical perspective of critical race theory and care ethics theory. Ten Black male students were interviewed and positive student teacher relationships make a difference in their schooling when a caring teacher relationship is present.
