Research has identified that a gap exists in the academic achievement of Nova Scotian students of African descent as compared to their peers. Taking an Africentric approach, this research aims to understand how schools, families, and communities can collaborate to provide an enabling environment for learning so that Nova Scotian students of African descent succeed in school. This research will also identify the opportunities and challenges associated with the development and implementation of policies that support such partnerships, and the ability of educators to understand the cultural nuances of the African culture. Furthermore, this research also proposes to identify the learning patterns amongst students that ensure successful schooling outcomes. Identification of such learning patterns will provide a basis for data-driven policy decision-making and implementation in Nova Scotian public schools.
