Building Skills for Black Workers assesses the current gap in education and training between African American and white workers, and explores possible remedies. This multi-author volume begins with an examination of the elementary and secondary education system (K-12) and concludes with an analysis of public and private worker training programs, addressing three broad questions: How do workers acquire the skills needed for upward mobility and career advancement? What is the current gap in education and training between black and white workers? And what strategies would reduce the gaps and improve the labor market outcomes for these workers?
