Publisher's Summary

For many years to come, race will continue to be a source of controversy and conflict in American society. For many of us it will continue to shape where we live, pray, go to school, and socialize. We cannot simply wish away the existence of race or racism, but we can take steps to lessen the ways in which the categories trap and confine us. Educators, who should be committed to helping young people realize their intellectual potential as they make their way toward adulthood, have a responsibility to help them find ways to expand identities related to race, so that they can experience the fullest possibility of all that they may become. 

In this brutally honest - yet ultimately hopeful - book, Pedro Noguera examines the many facets of race in schools and society, and reveals what it will take to improve outcomes for all students. From achievement gaps to immigration, Noguera offers a rich and compelling picture of a complex issue that affects all of us. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Brilliant Evaluation and very informative

Beautiful book on the failing education system effects on the black and brown populations they serve. Very detail and accurate I am a former educator and the information presented in this book are spot on. The education system is created for the adults more than meeting the learning needs of children. Thank you for this amazing contribution to the education cause.

The Trouble w This Book

Not sure if I ever got pass my pause w the title and I worry the damage to Black boys when this book is in the wrong hands of most people who don’t experience nor know nuance. Long on criticism of solutions and short on them himself save being a dad of Black males in the school system.... I’m not certain the purpose of this tome.
