9781434973672: The Unfinished Business of the Civil Rights Movement

The Unfinished Business of the Civil Rights Movement: Failure of America's Public Schools to Properly Educate its African American Student Population vividly describes the current crisis of America s inability to properly educate its African American students. Many of the details and cited statistics indicate alarming illiteracy rates and high dropout rates for disadvantaged Black and Latino students across the country. These rates stand in sharp contrast to those of their White peers and the Black/White academic achievement gap continues to widen.

The author mentions other problems that afflict the Black community, including the horrendous incarceration rates of young Black males, the shocking rates of Black abortions, and the precarious and implosive condition of the Black family in America. He contends that the core of these problems lay with America s failure to properly educate its Black students. These alarming figures are more than just statistics; they have widespread consequences upon American society.

The author highlights a proven and scientifically tested dialect reading program that showed promising results for Black functionally illiterate inner-city students in grades 7-12. He urges that a Second Civil Rights movement is needed to gain equal quality educational opportunities for all of America s children. We cannot deny these rights to some children without disparaging all children and the nation.
