Drawing on his own experience of feeling undervalued and invisible in classrooms as a young man of color, and merging his experiences with more than a decade of teaching and researching in urban America, award-winning educator Christopher Emdin offers a new lens on an approach to teaching and learning in urban schools. He begins by taking to task the perception of urban youth of color as unteachable, and he challenges educators to embrace and respect each student's culture.

Stereotypical rhetoric about how teachers are failing youth. Little actual talk of successful solutions. Stories built on conjecture and loose connections with little facts. Great idea, true dilemma that faces our nation, however poorly constructed story line that does not resemble a credible viewpoint.
