African American Males in PreK-12 Schools: Informing Research, Practice, and Policy presents a comprehensive viewpoint on preK-12 schooling for African American males. Including theoretical, conceptual, and research based chapters, this edited volume offers readers compelling evidence of the education challenges and successes for this student population. Each chapter provides a richer perspective of the experiences of African American males throughout their elementary and secondary education. Additionally, each chapter includes strong implications for education research, practice, and policy, as well as concrete recommendations to important stakeholders, such as educators, school counselors, parents, etc. Collectively, the contributors communicate throughout the edited volume that educational change is needed and that educational success is attainable for African American males. It is intended that the edited volume will help inform education research, practice, and policy as they relate to African American males. Equally important, it is envisioned that the readers will develop a greater interest in the education of African American males.

Review:

Drs. James L. Moore III and Chance W. Lewis have done a mighty and meaningful thing for the field of black male achievement, and our country as a whole, with publishing African American males in PreK-12 schools: Informing research, practice, and policy. They have accomplished the invaluable feat of organizing some of the nation's most brilliant minds to deliver a robust body of sound research and science which should be used to inform the educational, programmatic, and policy vision of what it means to even the playing field for black boys growing up in America. If we truly intend to weave a thread of racial equity within the current education reform debate, Drs. Moore and Lewis present a poignant and, at times piercing, path pointing us all toward academic success for African American males. --Shawn Dove, Campaign Manager for Black Male Achievement, Open Society Foundation, New York, NY

In this eye-opening work for students, practitioners, and policymakers in education, US contributors in psychology, education, counseling, sociology, urban education, African American studies, and career and workforce education highlight educational research on classroom practices and school policies that weaken academic and life outcomes for black male students. They also give some alternatives and recommendations. The first chapter reviews the academic and psychosocial development of African American males in PreK-12 settings. Subsequent chapters describe factors that contribute to the success of high-achieving African American boys and deal with discriminatory discipline practices for black male students, community violence and antisocial behavior, and African American males' participation in careers and technical education. One chapter offers specific guidelines for school counselors who want to create a college-going culture for black males in middle school. The book is distributed in North America by Turpin Distribution. --Ringgold Inc. Portland, OR (protoview.com)
