The distinguished and expert contributors whose work comprises this volume include an achievement-gap specialist for males of color, two psychologists, a math teacher, an electrical engineer, a former school principal, a social worker, and a former human rights commissioner. From black male learning styles to STEM, this book shows that issues pertaining to educational outcomes for black males are nuanced and complex but not unsolvable.
With its combination of fresh new approaches to closing achievement gaps and up-to-date views on trends, this volume is an invaluable resource on vital contemporary social and educational issues that aims to improve learning, equity, and access for African American males.
“Ransaw and colleagues strike a balance between advocacy and original research, remaining thoroughly committed to improving educational opportunities for young men of color. The writing provides an academic viewpoint laced with plenty of street cred.”
—Randall Boone, professor of education, University of Nevada Las Vegas
