Educating Our Black Children: New Directions and Radical Approaches

Synopsis

Exclusion and expulsion of black children from schools is endemic in the US and the UK. This book takes a long hard look at the two countries and uncovers what they can learn from each other in their approaches to tackling this problem. The material in the book is the result of extensive work with educators, researchers and scholars working in the area of exclusion in the US and the UK. Different approaches have met with varying degrees of success, all of which provide valuable lessons. Gathering together the issues and looking at real-world approaches, this book does not simply advance the debate -- it tables some serious solutions to serious problems.
