MEDIA REVIEWS
"This handbook represents the most comprehensive collection of research on African Americans in education to date. Its breadth spans the historical, the political, institutional and community forces that have shaped educational opportunities and attainment among African Americans. The review of extant research on a range of topics from the role of culture and identity in learning, teacher preparation, educational leadership, to higher education and educational policy is far-reaching and cutting edge. This volume has historic significance and will become a classic collection on African American education for scholars and practitioners alike."

Carol D. Lee, Professor, Northwestern University
Vice-President, Division G, American Educational Research Association -- Carol D. Lee, Professor, Northwestern University
"A wise scientist once argued that to doubt everything or to believe
everything often results in the same solution set; both eliminate the
need for reflection. This handbook provides an intellectual space for
those interested in true reflection on the human ecology of the African
American experience in schools, communities, and society. The /Handbook
of African American Education/ is a repository of information developed
to advance the human service professional."

William F. Tate IV

Edward Mallinckrodt Distinguished University Professor in Arts & Sciences, Washington University in St. Louis -- William F. Tate IV
"The SAGE Handbook of African American Education is a unique, comprehensive collection of theoretical and empirical scholarship in six important areas: historical perspectives, teaching and learning, Pre-K-12 school leadership, higher education, current issues, and education policy."
-- TEACHERS OF COLOR
"It is an impressive volume that provides a breadth of information on the current status of African American education." -- Paul O. Myhre * Teaching Theology and Religion *
