CLEMSON – Dr. Lamont A. Flowers, executive director of the Charles H. Houston Center, conducted research that was recently published in a new book, Black Male Teachers: Diversifying the United States’ Teacher Workforce.

Flowers’ chapter is titled “Exploring the Relationship between Academic Self-Regulation and Educational Outcomes among African American Male Education Majors.” The book chapter, which was based on a national sample of students, highlights the relationship between academic experiences and educational outcomes among African American males pursuing education degrees.

“This study suggests that African American males pursuing education degrees, who spend more time preparing for class, yield higher educational gains in college,” said Flowers.

The Charles H. Houston Center conducts the program evaluation for the nationally-acclaimed Call Me MISTER program.
