Unfairly excluded from gifted programs and college preparatory courses, black boys are overrepresented in special education classes and are suspended and expelled more frequently than white students for less serious offenses. They are also at the bottom of the achievement gap and have very high dropout rates. This book draws on the latest and best scholarship from diverse fields to show black parents how to help their sons excel in public school despite facing such crippling inequities.
This timely book explores:
• how to keep your son out of special education unjustly
• how to recognize good and bad teachers

• The No Child Left Behind Law
• and much, much more
