Review:

«It is extremely imperative that current and future urban educators immerse themselves in this book. By being grounded in its content, educators would be better outfitted to ensure urban youths acquire a universal academic curiosity, a global perspective, technological skills, sociability skills, and the awareness necessary to succeed – not only in college or the workplace, but...[in our] fast-paced diverse world, dynamic global economy, fluid geopolitical system, multiple-language world – and [to become] engaged citizens and contributors to the world community.» (Julian Stafford, EdD, Vice President for Marketing, ‘Modern Parents Magazine’)
«This is an optimistic book. The issues, challenges, and pressures that impact the educational experiences and outcomes of African American youth in urban schools are recounted here but are only part of the story. The book also offers credible and hopeful guidance that strengthens our capacity and our commitment to improve urban schools for the benefit of the learners they serve. This volume is a tremendous resource for all of us who care about the educational futures of our children.» (Mary Lynne Calhoun, PhD, Dean, College of Education, University of North Carolina at Charlotte)
