Throughout the world, students of color experience failure in school for a variety of very complex reasons. They often do not receive the proper encouragement from teachers, they may lack the motivation necessary to excel in an academic environment, they usually face a number of demographic, socioeconomic and cultural factors that work against them, or their academic performance may not be measured properly. With contributions from scholars living in the U.S. and abroad, The Academic Achievement of Minority Students is a comprehensive work that provides fresh insights and practical strategies for addressing these problems in order to enhance minority student performance in school. The papers in this volume collectively cover the many issues affecting minority students from kindergarten through post-secondary education including the instructional and nonacademic factors that promote achievement or lead to attrition. Most importantly, the authors offer valuable prescriptions for advancing the learning opportunities of all students in the future.
