African American Education in the 1930s South Amna Bashir, Amanda Eberhard, Cat Tallmadge, and Ashleigh Walker Conclusion In conclusion, African American schools were treated very poorly due to prejudice by school boards and the Jim Crow laws. As a result of these limitations, the African American community was not given the proper education they deserved. African American schools were treated inferior compared to white schools. includes laws 7, 14, 22, 24, 25, 26, 28, 32, 33 School Days The average expenditure for African Americans "was fifteen [dollars]" per pupil per year. On Their Own African American schools were underfunded "because white southern school boards denied black taxpayers the funds necessary to construct black schools". Without the board's help, "blacks pooled their limited resources and embarked on programs of school construction". Results of Underfunding African Americans had "ramshackle, segregated schools" Prejudice African American school year duration was "about four days shorter than that for white children". One reason the white board lowered the blacks is because "Whites feared that blacks would challenge white supremacy". The poorly treated schools "marked blacks with a stigma of inferiority and the status of second-class citizenship" To get to school, "some students had to walk as far as eight miles to their classes, because there was no school bus available". Walking the Distance Classrooms For whites, the expenditure "per year was eighty dollars". Out of two hundred southern counties, none of them "[had] a single high school for black students". However, "every one of these counties possessed a school for whites". These schools "had fewer books. worse buildings, and less well paid teachers." In the South, "black students... were crowded into one room and [schools] were poorly equipped.” N.d. Photograph.
