Refuting common ideas about the racial achievement gap, this exploration of the education system posits that the gap is not the result of the students, their parents, or the larger community, but rather stems from the limited effectiveness of the schools they attend. With a focus on what principals and teachers can do, this instructive resource explores ways that schools can change in order to better serve the needs of these students, such as gaining a better understanding of different learning styles, implementing a curriculum that is more relevant to students’ lives, focusing on the amount of time each task takes each student, and experimenting with single-gender classrooms. This book also looks at examples of the success of black students in schools that have taken the time to apply some of these policies, demonstrating that any student can thrive when benefited with a passionate and comprehensive education.
