Using a combination of case studies and research, the contributors of this timely book highlight some of the significant issues, historical, curricular, and societal, that have led to African American students having a proportionally larger representation in special education classes, higher drop-put rates, and more incidences of in-school, race-on-race violence.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Educating African American Students couldn't be timelier. As we prepare students for success in the twenty-first century, the curriculum that we present must reflect the strengths and accomplishments of all groups. We must eradicate the achievement gap and to do so means to seriously consider the obstacles to achievement experienced by specific cultural groups and then to do all that is necessary to remove those obstacles. -- Leontye Lewis, dean, College of Education, Fayetteville State University
Educating African American Students illuminates for its readers some critical issues relating to the education of African American youth. This excellent book enlightens educators about the educational ills confronting African American students. It is a timely book that provokes a sense of urgency, compelling educators to examine why it is now time to move from "the Culture of Death to the Culture of Life." The book is a necessity for educators attempting to understand the complexity of African American education, because it lays a foundation for understanding the contemporary plight of African American students. -- Joseph A. Meyinsse, chair of science and mathematics education, Southern University and A &M College
Clearly, this book represents a conceptual transformation in pedagogy for educating African American children who have been taught for too long by criteria in which they have had no voice. This powerful book acknowledges the uniqueness of African American children as well as issues specifically related to them. The book is creative and marks a great day for education and our children. -- Rose Duhon-Sells, founder of the National Association for Multicultural Education (NAME), and vice-chancellor of academic affairs, Southern Univer
