Jaietta Jackson - Collegiate success of Black males from single parent female households

Jaietta's line of inquiry includes the exploration of collegiate success of black males from single parent female households. Many studies have been conducted to show why these males have failed educationally. Studies also indicate that the lack of a father in the household is influential in educational failure. Because there is overwhelming research regarding the educational failure of black male, Jaietta seeks to examine the opposite perspective. She is exploring the educational success of black males while at the same time analyzing how single mother parenting influences the collegiate success of black males.
